Tulse hill hit and run
Police want to speak to the driver of this lorry in connection to the hit-and-run Met Police


  • CCTV images released after Polish woman dies in Tulse Hill hit-and-run.
  • The drivers of four vehicles failed to stop after hitting a woman during rush hour.
  • Met Police have already spoken to two drivers in connection with collision.

London's Met Police has released CCTV images of a lorry and a car in a bid to trace their drivers after a woman was killed in a hit-and-run. The horrific accident saw the woman hit by a succession of four vehicles, all of which drove away from the scene.

The 29-year-old woman died at the scene on Norwood Road in south-east London's Tulse Hill on the morning of 11 December.

Police said the victim was struck by a lorry as she crossed the road at a pedestrian crossing while the lights were green for traffic. The driver failed to stop at the scene.

Officers believe that the woman, a Polish national staying with family in Wandsworth, was then struck by a second lorry and two cars, with none of these drivers stopping either.

The driver a of the first lorry, a 49-year-old man, has been interviewed under caution in connection with the collision.

The 52-year-old male driver of the second car involved in the collision was arrested on the evening of 12 December on suspicion of causing death by careless driving. He was taken into police custody and subsequently released under investigation.

Police have now released images of the two other vehicles which drove away form the scene and are urging the drivers to come forward.

The images show a white heavy goods vehicle - possibly a Mercedes - which is believed to be the second vehicle involved in the collision. A black car, similar to a Vauxhall SUV, is thought to be the third vehicle to have struck the woman.

Acting detective sergeant Alastair Middleton, said: "We want to hear from anyone who travelled from the South Circular junctions of Norwood Road going towards the junction of Brixton Hill between the hours of 6:30am and 7:00am on the day of the collision.

"We are particularly interested in any dashcam footage that may have captured some of the incident before or after the collision.

"We are grateful for all those witnesses who have come forward, but we continue to appeal for anyone who was passing and witnessed the collision and the moments afterwards to contact us immediately.

"Enquiries are continuing to trace the two outstanding vehicles involved. A number of actions, including the recovery of local CCTV footage are in hand. I would urge the two drivers we are yet to trace come forward and speak with my team."
