Motorcyclist, 24, killed in Maida Vale crash. Minicab driver arrested at scene.


A 24-year-old man has been killed and another man arrested in a smash between a minicab and motorbike in west London.

The young motorcyclist died at the scene of the crash, which happened on Sutherland Avenue in Maida Vale at around 11.20pm on Thursday night.


Police raced to the road, at the junction with Shirland Road, and found the man seriously injured.

Paramedics fought to save his life but he died around half an hour later.

The driver of the car, a 22-year-old man, has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

The motorcyclist’s next of kin have been informed.

His body will be formally identified and a post-mortem examination carried out.

Police closed the road and enquiries continue.

The Met are asking anyone with information or who witnessed the collision to contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111

Guess what... like the baby that was mown down in Kensington, this killing will be broomed under the carpet and a statement will be released by a third party mini cab company stating the PH driver was working for them at the time and not signed on to the Uber platform. The pictures of the car suggest this killing is another one courtessy of U know who!

Meanwhile at Khanage HQ, the Mayor "In name only" will be cobbling together more bullshit to feed to the masses.
He will be deeply concerned about the arrested Uber brother , sorry slip of the tongue, I meant to write Uber partner. There will be NO comment from Khans office about the dead victim and No empathy either. The main focus will be the cover up!

There has already been a passenger killed in an uber x ride sharing car on Farringdon street. Mentioned once on itv then vanished from existance. The corruption and coverups are so hard to comprehend.

As a black cab driver and a motorcyclist my heart goes out the deceased man's family. Sadly I can picture the scene, an inexperienced minicab driver distracted and not paying attention and then bang!

Everyone who use uber or license uber are partly responsible for the poor man and his family as this is the price some victims will pay so uber can carry on operating the way they have.
Unfortunately the users and TfL etc seem to be able to clear their conscience because they did not directly kill this man.this is why we need rules and regs to stop the idiots driving down the standards to a dangerous level,certain people need their moral compass resetting and told what is the right and wrong thing to do in life instead of just saving or making money
