Hunt for FOUR hit-and-run drivers after woman dies

Cordoned off: The scene in Tulse Hill

A WOMAN has died after being hit by two lorries and two cars on a pedestrian crossing — none of which stopped.

The 29-year-old victim was on a road described by one local resident as ‘a racetrack of sorts’ when she was struck by an HGV. The driver failed to stop and the woman was subsequently hit by a second lorry and two cars.

Paramedics were called to the scene in Tulse Hill, south London, at 6.48am on Monday. They were unable to save the victim, who comes from Wandsworth but had not been formally named last night.

Acting Det Sgt Alastair Middleton said: ‘I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision and the moments afterwards to contact us. We are particularly interested in any dashcam footage.

‘I would also urge the drivers of all four vehicles to come forward and speak with my team.’ Navin Bagan, 37, who works at the Tulse Hill Café, described the hit-and-run drivers as ‘heartless’.

‘They just left her to die — it is not right,’ she said. ‘This road is sometimes very busy in the mornings but that’s not an excuse for a car to hit a lady and run off.

‘I hope they find them. I’m sure they will find them — it’s a busy road, there are lots of security cameras.’

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 020 8543 5157.
