Cyclist dies following Great Cambridge Road crash
Tributes have been paid to a cyclist who died on Monday after being hit by a car in Great Cambridge Road last week.
Frank Mugisha, of Hoe Lane, Enfield, died on Monday at approximately 3.30am from the serious injuries he suffered from the crash at the junction with White Hart Lane on March 27.
The sports coach, who was in his early 40s, was originally from Uganda and has left behind a grieving wife and several children.
One of his closest friends, Isaac Adams, 33, has spoken of the devastation his death has brought to the community.
He said: ““He was the most popular African man in London.
“Frank was someone that got on with everyone. He was the best man. He was a lovely man - he was very friendly and popular in the community.
“I am outraged at what happened. This has caused a shake up in the community. We are all devastated.”
According to Mr Adams, Mr Mugisha remained unconscious at the Royal London Hospital for six days between the crash and his death.
Mr Adams said his friend also had his leg amputated following the crash, but did not pull through.
The pair met in Uganda 16 years ago before being reunited in London four years later after they had both moved to the capital.
Mr Mugisha had planned to travel to Uganda next week to see friends and family who live there.
A 62-year-old man has been arrested for dangerous driving following the incident and has been bailed until late April.
Great Cambridge Road was closed southbound following the accident at 1.40pm to allow the emergency services to deal with the situation.
Although one lane reopened at 4.30pm, heavy traffic meant the Tottenham Hotspur vs Bolton Wanderers match was delayed for around 15 minutes to allow fans time to arrive at the stadium.
