Louise Clark, 38, a barmaid from Ickenham, had to be cut out of her Audi TT after the incident, which took place in Harvil Road at around 6.30pm on December 30.

The driver of the other car involved, a blue Honda Civic, fled the scene.

Police have now released a picture of a man they want to speak to in connection with the collision. Steven Palmer (pictured), 27, is from Hayes.

Officers are also appealing for a witness, driving a light or white coloured Fiat 500 to come forward. They were not directly involved in the collision but were travelling along Harvil Road towards Harefield at the time.

Anyone with information should contact DS Stephen Pidgeon of the Northolt Collision Investigation Unit on 020 8842 1817 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Two men, aged 32 and 44, earlier arrested in connection with the inquiry, have been bailed to return to a west London police station in late January 2013 and in March 2013 respectively pending further inquiries.
