A 25-YEAR-OLD man has died following a crash in Sydenham yesterday. (Aug 25)
Emergency services were called to Mayow Road at 6.23am to reports of a road traffic collision.
Paramedics from London Ambulance Service (LAS) rushed to the scene but were unable to save the patient, who was in cardiac arrest when they arrived.
Mayow Road was shut between the B227 Perry Vale and the A212 Sydenham Road at around 6.30am.
Detectives from the Met Police Road Death Investigation Unit are investigating.
Eye-witnesses reported seeing six police cars, four fire engines and two ambulance cars at the scene earlier this morning.
One witness wrote one Facebook: "Heard what I thought was thunder at 6.20am, five minutes later sirens.
"Someone crashed outside, car a wreck and still trying to save him 45 minutes later."
A LAS spokeswoman added: “We sent an ambulance crew, two single responders in cars, a duty officer and London’s Air Ambulance team in a car to the scene.
“The patient – a man – was in cardiac arrest.
“Sadly, despite extensive efforts to resuscitate him, he was pronounced dead at the scene by the doctor from the air ambulance.”
The road was re-opened shortly before midday.
