A witness told The Sun of the accident, "His bike hit her and she spun round, off her feet and fell badly on the floor."

"The officer was devastated," the person added. "But he was going on the wrong side of the road. It could have been so much worse."

Sources also told the publication Prince William and Kate were "devastated" when informed of the accident. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sent flowers to Mayor as an apology and reportedly plan to visit her in person.
