Ali Nasralla was thrown 3m into the air and his bicycle was snapped in hald after a collision with a black cab in Kingston.
“I don’t want other people to die” his father, Murtadha Nasralla, told the Evening Standard. “There is a school here but the road where this happened has a 30mph limit. It should be reduced to 20mph and the council should install speed bumps.
“I’d change the speed limit on roads near schools across London, and the whole of the UK if I could.”
Ali, who was a fan of Chelsea FC, was with his child-minder on his way home from nearby Robin Hood Primary School when the accident happened. Dozens of bouquets of flowers have been laid by schoolmates, relatives and shocked strangers near where the accident happened.
About 400 mourners gathered for the boy’s funeral on Saturday. A reception yesterday was attended by about 1500 people.
His life support machine was switched off two-and-a-half hours later.”
Police said the taxi driver stopped at the scene and was not arrested, but their investigation is continuing.
