Police are appealing for witnesses and information after the death of a woman in Barnet.

The as yet unnamed woman died following a dispute with another woman driver and an incident in which she collided with a Belisha beacon, police believe.

The woman, probably in her 30s, was confirmed dead at the scene by paramedics after police responded to a call at East Barnet Road, Barnet, early Monday evening.

Police said they were called at approximately 6.40pm.

During the incident, it is believed the woman got out of her car, was carried on the bonnet of another vehicle, fell off, and then hit an amber zebra crossing lamp before the other vehicle drove away. The woman died after sustaining head injuries.

Since the incident, police have arrested a woman in connection with the inquiry, who has been bailed until late April. A Vauxhall Insignia has also been recovered.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call the case’s incident room on 020 8247 7821 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
