That left a pedestrian seriously injured

Officers are appealing for witnesses and information following a fail-to-stop collision that left a pedestrian seriously injured.

At around 18.30 on Friday 21st November a car was in collision with a pedestrian on Clapham Common North Side at the junction with Battersea Rise.

Officers and ambulance service attended and the pedestrian, a woman aged in her 30s, was taken to a south London hospital suffering head injuries. The injuries are being treated as life threatening.

The car, believed to be a small white hatchback, did not stop at the scene and is believed to have continued towards Lavender Hill. It is believed to have suffered damage to its front end and windscreen.

At this early stage it is believed the collision occurred as the pedestrian was using the crossing at the junction.

Officers from the South West Serious Collision Investigation Unit are appealing for anyone with any information about the car involved, its driver or the collision to contact them.

Any witnesses to the collision, who haven't already spoken to police, are also asked to contact them.
