A woman was killed after she was hit by a lorry and then run over three more times – but none of the four drivers stopped at the scene, it was revealed.
The victim of the horror hit-and-run was first struck by a lorry as she crossed the road in a pedestrian crossing.
She was then struck by a second lorry and three cars, according to detectives, who confirmed none of the drivers stopped.
The victim has not yet been formally identified, but she is believed to be in her late 20s to early 30s.
The shocking multiple hit-and-run happened in Norwood Road in Tulse Hill, south London, at about 6.45am on Monday.
The woman was treated at the scene by paramedics, but she could not be saved.
She was pronounced dead just after 7.20am.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “Police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 6.48am to Norwood Road to reports of a woman injured after a road traffic collision.
“The female pedestrian, who is believed to be aged in her late 20s to early 30s, was treated at the scene. Sadly, she was pronounced dead at 7.21am.
“Formal identification is yet to take place and enquiries to trace next of kin are ongoing. A post-mortem examination will be held in due to course.
“Officers have established that the woman was struck by an HGV as she crossed the road at a pedestrian crossing. The driver failed to stop at the scene.”Officers believe that the woman was subsequently struck by a second lorry and two cars; none of these drivers stopped.”
Acting Detective Sergeant Alastair Middleton added: “I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision and the moments afterwards to contact us. I would also urge the drivers of all four vehicles to come forward and speak with my team.”
