Yet another tragic accident has occurred on Chelsea Embankment – this time at the junction with Oakley Street.
At 6.30 am on 14th May 2022, Olivia Riley was walking her three golden retrievers when she was knocked down by a car and killed. All the dogs were also killed.
The driver has been arrested.
All the members of The Chelsea Society send their deepest sympathy to Olivia’s family.
Not long ago, on 13th January 2021 another pedestrian, Jack Ryan, was knocked down and killed – at the north end of Battersea Bridge.
The Chelsea Society has been campaigning and will continue to campaign to make our streets safer for pedestrians, and we will be calling a public meeting later this year. Speed-limits alone are not the answer – some junctions need to be redesigned.
