Police investigating a collision in Streatham which led to the death of a woman waiting at a bus stop have made an arrest.
A man attended a south London police station this morning and was detained, a Metropolitan Police spokesman said. He is currently in custody.
Veronica Vanessa Chango-Alvarez, 31, died after the incident in Streatham High Road, which took place when an Audi A3 was involved in the collision at the bus stop at around 5.30am on Saturday.
A 51-year-old man, also injured in the same collision, remains in hospital.
The Audi was found abandoned at the scene.
The incident has been linked to an earlier incident on the A23, when an Audi A3 stopped at the scene of a collision involving a VW Passat and a tree in London Road in Norbury.
The driver of the Audi drove off when plain clothed police officers made themselves known.
