A man in his sixties has been killed after a collision in Battersea this Saturday evening (11 January).

The pedestrian, who was in his sixties, was hit after a crash between two cars on Falcon Road near the junction with York Road shortly before 8.55pm.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and his next of kin have been informed.

One of the drivers, a 32-year-old man, left the scene on foot but returned a short time later.

He was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of a collision. He has been taken into custody.

The other driver, a 29-year-old man, was not arrested and is assisting police with their enquiries.

Road closures were in place but have since been lifted.

This is at least the third fatality on Battersea’s roads over the last six months. A woman was killed on Queenstown Road in December after her car collided with a bus and a female pedestrian died last August when she was hit by a motorcycle.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has information or dash cam footage that could assist police, is asked to call the Serious Collisions Investigation Unit at Merton on 0208 5435157.
