A pedestrian suffered head injuries when he was hit by a van in Crayford.

The man, thought to be in his 50s, was hit by a Fiat panel van in Station Road near the junction with Galloway Drive at around 7.25am. 

He was rushed to King's College Hospital by ambulance, though his injuries are not thought to be life-changing. 

A stretch of Station Road was closed off but was later reopened. 

The driver of the van stopped at the scene and no arrests have been made.

People drive along Station Road way too fast. The speedbumps have no effect. Hope he's ok

Frustratingly poeple are in sooo much of a rush. I'd rather arrive 10 mins late and be safe and in 1 piece than spread accross a road making others late.

There is no indication that the van driver was at fault what so ever. He has not been arrested and there are no facts either way to say he was at fault.
Could it be that the pedestrian was rushing for his train and stepped out at the wrong time?

Either way lets hope he makes a full recovery.

Station Road is part of the 20mph speed limit zone imposed because of the number of accidents in that area. Unknown to most people because of the lack of signage is that the zone also encompasses other roads that lead off Station Road like Lower Station Road, Royston Road, Heathview Avenue and Heathlee Road.

Nearly all drivers need to be more respectful of the lower limits imposed in these places to reduce the identified higher accident rates.

Yeah, that is true, and in fact the 20mph sign is near where this took place. I am referring mainly to the boy racers who are easily doing 50/60mph on this stretch of road. The parking on the junction of Lower Station Road/Station Road is double yellow lined, people still park on these lines which blocks the view of anyone turning from LSR. Sooner or later there will be a very bad accident with this combination. As ever LBB want to know very little about it as we all know how owns the pub these car owners are drinking in........

Very well said, I agree 100%. It is just a matter of time before there is a serious incident accident here.
