A woman died in a hit-and-run accident on The Mall this morning, moments after being in an accident with another car.

The female victim was in collision with a black Mercedes e-Class at approximately 2.20am this morning. The driver of the car stopped at the scene.

A second car, a blue Mercedes e-Class, then collided with the victim. The driver of this car did not stop.

London Ambulance Service attended and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident at 2.37am. Inquiries are underway to establish her identity. She is described as being of heavy build with collar length dark brown hair.

The second vehicle was subsequently traced to an address in Hendon and a man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving and failing to stop at the scene of the collision.

He remains in custody.

Officers from the Road Death Investigation Unit based at Catford will investigate.

Anyone with information call 101.
