A woman who died in a collision with an Audi A3 at a Streatham bus stop yesterday has been identified.
Veronica Vanessa Chango-Alverez, 31, was fatally injured after the incident in Streatham High Road, which occurred at around 5.30am.
A post-mortem examination has given her cause of death as multiple injuries. Police said she was staying with her mother in Streatham High Road at the time of her death.
A 51-year-old man, also believed to have been at the bus stop, was taken by ambulance to a south London hospital, where his condition remains critical.
The driver of the car left the scene before officers arrived and the damaged Audi was abandoned at the scene.
The collision has been linked to an incident which took place ten minutes earlier on the A23.
A Volkswagen Passat car was in collision with a tree in London Road in Norbury at the junction with Ederline Avenue.
Police believe that an Audi A3 stopped at the scene of the incident and the driver got out of the car, only to drive off when nearby plain clothed police officers identified themselves.
The injured driver of the Passat, a 29-year-old man, was taken to hospital where he is now in a stable condition.
