A 37-year-old paramedic who worked for London Ambulance Service may never be able to return to her job after being hit by a motorcycle on Putney High Street.

Lisa Brown has been off work for seven months after she was seriously injured in the collision on 15 July last year. She was hit by Timi Joe on a pedestrian crossing after he accelerated past a bus on a three-wheel motorbike.

He was serving a driving ban at the time and fled the scene running towards Putney Bridge before being arrested. He gave police officers a false name. Ms Brown had worked as a paramedic for over 10 years.

Joe pleaded guilty at Kingston Crown Court to dangerous driving and driving while disqualified and was sentenced to 12 months in prison suspended for 18 months, and given a three-year driving ban. According to the Evening Standard he is currently working as a bicycle courier.

We have asked London Ambulance Service for comment.
