Dear Lewisham Borough Council,

On 25/06/2018, unfortunately I was involved in accident on Catford Rd/South Circular between the stretch from Canadian Avenue and Doggett Road. I was not at fault and though I have a witness, I wanted to obtain any further evidence possible to strengthen my claim. The other driver did not want to exchange details but fortunately police were nearby to assist and officiate the exchange. The details are below

Date: 25/06/2018
Time: 13:45-14:15
Location: Catford Rd/South Circular (between junction of Canadian Avenue, towards Doggett Road)
Vehicles: Blue Ford Focus YR06MWY (my car), Blue Toyota Corolla Estate L915HJH

I was situated in the right hand lane from Canadian Avenue and the driver of the Toyota tried to overtake a lorry that she said cut her up. She veered into the right hand lane from the left resulting in our collision. The lady is not admitting fault and is trying to say that I was behind her, which makes no sense for the damage is to my passenger side and her damage is to the driver side.

If there is any footage recorded of the incident, I would really appreciate a copy. I thank you in advance with dealing with my request and look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Jonathan Downer

Fish-Halvorsen, Daniel, Lewisham Borough Council
