    Billie Piper’s car collided with a cyclist

    By David Brown on August 6, 2014

    Actress Billie Piper – best known for her roles in Doctor Who and Confessions of a Call Girl – has been questioned by police after her car collided with a cyclist, leaving him with serious injuries.

    The star was on her way to the National Theatre for her performance in the play Grey Britain when she reportedly attempted to perform a U-turn on a road behind Kings’ Cross station on 29th July. Her two sons Winston, five, and Eugene, two, were in the back of the vehicle at the time.

    The teenage male was reportedly travelling downhill at some speed when he crashed into the back of Piper’s car where he was thrown to the ground. The teenager received treatment for a shoulder injury from the London Ambulance service before being taken to University College Hospital for further treatment.

    Miss Piper was not arrested, and after questioning arrived at the National Theatre where she was due to perform but she was left so shaken by the accident that she cancelled her performance and her understudy had to replace her. Officers must decide if the actress’s driving was dangerous.

    So far this year eight cyclists have lost their lives in accidents in London and London Mayor Boris Johnson has recently pledged £1 billion to improve cycle safety. Despite this there have been calls for cyclists to take greater responsibility for their actions and to ensure that they wear helmets to protect themselves.
