Officers were called at approximately 10.15pm on Monday, October 22 to reports of a car in collision with two pedestrians on Danson Road.

Police attended along with the London Ambulance Service (LAS) and London’s Air Ambulance.

A 58-year-old woman and a one-year-old child were taken to hospital.

The baby has since been released while the woman remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

It was established that a tow vehicle, registration plate L9 ELV, was towing the car that collided with the pedestrian and the car was a silver Ford Mondeo with the registration plate of MV53 PMO.

The driver and passengers of the tow vehicle fled the scene.

Officers believe the Ford Mondeo was a stolen vehicle.

Det Con Michael Peat, who is investigating the case, said: “We know that there were a lot of people around who will have witnessed this collision and I’m appealing to them to come forward and share what they know.

“In addition, anyone with dash-cam footage that may have captured the collision or the events leading up to it should get in contact.

“The driver and the passengers who were in the tow vehicle will have known that a woman and a baby were injured in this incident before they decided to flee - I would appeal to them to listen to their conscience and speak to police.”

Enquiries continue.

Anyone with witnesses or anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 and quote CAD 1987/22Oct or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
