A MAN has been charged with dangerous driving after a woman was hit by a lorry.

The elderly woman was airlifted to hospital after being seriously hurt in the accident outside Southend Fire Station in Sutton Road, Southend.

The driver of the lorry, a 43-year-old Romanian man, was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and taken into custody.

Marcel Georgescu has since been charged and will appear at Southend Magistrates Court on Monday.

The road was closed from the roundabout with Eastern Avenue and the junction at Stock Road following the collision, in which a 77-year-old woman was knocked down by the lorry when crossing the road.

The ambulance service received a call shortly before 1pm and an ambulance, paramedic officer and the Essex Air Ambulance attended the scene.

The woman, believed to be called Rose, was airlifted to the Royal London Hospital shortly after 2pm, where she remains a critical condition.

 

Echo:

A spokesperson for the ambulance service said: "She sustained serious injuries to her chest, back and arm.

"Her injuries are potentially life threatening but she is not thought to be in at immediate risk of death.

"She was anaesthetised by the air ambulance crew and then flown to the Royal London Hospital."

Police want to identify the drivers of three vehicles which were approaching the scene at the time of the incident, including a white transit van with sign writing travelling towards Rochford and a white box van with a tail lift travelling towards Southend.

The driver of a white transit van without sign writing, which was heading towards Southend, got out of his vehicle and approached the scene.

He had dark hair and was wearing a white t-shirt.

Assuming the poor old lady was taken to hospital shortly after 2pm what on earth are the police doing for the next 4 hours ? I'm sure the spot where she fell will be marked and the lorry can inspected at the nearest good vehicle test station . 4 hours is seriously wasting money , police manpowerand inconveniencing the general public . Does that mean Fire appliances cannot pass if required ? This nonsense does not happen in the rest of Europe, why should it happen here . Does Sherlock Holmes comb the scene with his magnifying glass or is it just a ploy for a half shift of time wasting . I think I know the answer !

When the lorry PLOUGHED into that poor lady that section of the road became a crime scene! A serious and/or fatal road traffic accident HAS to be investigated! Have some respect for the victim and her family who will,and who deserve answers! I lay under that lorry with this lady while the emergency services worked with speed and professionalism to get her out alive! I'm sure her family would be really comforted when the police tell them they have no facts or answers to give them because they "moved the lorry and just hosed down the blood so the general public could get to the tip"

In the rest of Europe 'Strict Liability' is applied. If you hit a pedestrian or cyclist you are automatically at fault and deemed responsible to pay damages.
Strict Liability already exists in the UK when you drive into the back of another road user.
In this case the truck has right turned and hit a pedestrian. You are fault as a driver in that situation.

Jaywalking is not ignored in the UK, quite simply because there is no ruling regarding it here. It is legal to cross the road anywhere without having to wait at a zebra or pelican crossing etc.

We were coming from Nestuda Way yesterday, joining the A127 at the Tesco roundabout and saw another 'accident waiting to happen'. A huge Asda truck but with an Irish number-plate. Driver steering round the roundabout using his right hand only - left hand had mobile phone clamped to his ear.
Makes me wonder how many foreign truck drivers are over their hours, fiddling their tachograph, like the German driver who killed a man on the M25 not too long ago? If memory serves, he'd been driving for about 22 hours.

The road that is a accident waiting to hapen and I am surprised that no ones been killed there in the several years whilst living there is Barnstaple road Thorpe bay , the yound lads especially on motorbikes and in cars speed down at road like it's a motorway .
