Elderly Woman Seriously Hurt, Hit By William and Kate's Police Convoy

From the UK Daily Mail:

  • Motorcycle in Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's convoy was involved in a collision at 12.50pm on Monday
  • An 83-year-old grandmother remains in a 'serious but stable' condition in a London hospital after the crash
  • It happened on Upper Richmond Road, south west London, as convoy escorted Duke and Duchess to Windsor
  • William and Kate were travelling to join the Queen for the Order of the Garter ceremony at Windsor Castle
  • A spokesman for the royal couple told the Mail they were ‘deeply concerned and saddened’ and had been in touch with the victim’s family. Flowers have been sent

A grandmother is seriously ill in hospital following an accident involving Prince William’s official convoy. Police watchdogs are investigating the incident – the fourth involving a royal in just seven months. William and his wife Kate were leaving London to take part in a ceremony at Windsor Castle when Monday’s accident happened.

It is believed it involved one of the advance party of police motorcycle outriders who hold back traffic. It is not clear whether the victim – named by neighbours as Irene Mayor, 83 – was struck, or fell. ‘There was a massive police presence around the crash,’ said Simon Banks, who lives near Mrs Mayor.

‘A lady was on the ground being attended to by the paramedics and a police motorcycle was lying on its side on the road nearby.’ A spokesman for the royal couple told the Mail they were ‘deeply concerned and saddened’ and had been in touch with the victim’s family. Flowers have been sent.
