Merton is a London borough (in south west London) which includes Wimbledon, Mitcham and Morden along with many other smaller areas. Wimbledon has been a centre of human habitation since at least the Iron Age as evidenced by the hill fort on Wimbledon Common. The pub, the Dog and Fox, was a stagecoach stop in the 18th century, on the road from London to Portsmouth. That being so, there have probably been road traffic accidents in Merton for centuries, although the nature of the accidents has changed over the years, as have the vehicles involved.
