Woman pushing pram in critical condition after hit and run in London

A woman is in a life-threatening condition after being knocked down by a hit-and-run driver while pushing a pram.

Metropolitan police officers said they were called to the junction of North Hyde Lane and Raleigh Road in Southall, west London, at about 12.30pm on Friday to reports of a collision involving a car and pedestrian.

The woman, in her 30s, was taken to hospital and was in a critical condition, but the baby was unharmed, officers said. Her next of kin had been informed.

Officers from the Met’s serious collision investigation unit were looking for the driver, who failed to stop, and asked for witnesses or drivers in the area at the time who might have dashcam footage to get in touch.

People able to assist the investigation can call 101, while anyone with urgent information about the driver’s location can call 999.
