A man has been charged following the death of a woman in Streatham.
Veronica Vanessa Chango-Alvarez was in Streatham High Road when the accident happened early on December 22.
Ms Chango-Alvarez was pronounced dead at the scene. The 31-year-old was staying at her mother’s home in Streatham High Road.
A post mortem examination at Greenwich Mortuary gave cause of death as multiple injuries.
Her brother Kevin Raul Chango-Alvarez said earlier in a statement: “My family has had its heart torn out, at this Christmas time, we will never be the same again.
“On Friday night we were together as a family with Veronica meeting her newly born nephew and preparing for Christmas. I last saw her alive as she left to go to work on Saturday morning, but moments later I was holding her hand as she passed away in the street. We as a family are devastated at our loss.”
Another man was critically injured in the accident.
Nathan Davis, 27, of Normanton House, Clapham, was charged last night with death by dangerous driving and GBH.
He is due to appear in custody at Camberwell Magistrates’ Court today.
