Pensioner dies in collision on Wanstead High Street


An elderly man died after a collision at the zebra crossing in Wanstead High Street on Tuesday morning.

The incident happened just before 9am during heavy rain and strong winds. Some hours later investigators were still at the scene and the High Street remained closed for most of the day. A small car was removed from the crossing.

The Wanstead Guardian reported that the man, in his 90s, died just after 1pm from head injuries. It said no arrests had been made.

  1. A very sad incident indeed my thoughts go out to the family and friends of the deceased.
    Peace and Blessings


  2. I am not sure in which direction the man was crossing but for ages we have commented on how the wonderful large tree trunk outside the meeting place building (not sure of it’s name) is now a complete obstruction to drivers being able to see people stepping out from that side to cross the road. It totally obscures them.
    This is so very sad… Thoughts with the family and all concerned. RIP
