16-year-old girl killed and six injured after hit-and-run in Croydon | London

A 16-year-old girl has been killed and six pedestrians were injured after a car lost control and crashed into them in Croydon.

The emergency services including the air ambulance were called to the scene of the crash on Pixton Way just after 1am on Sunday.

A red Audi A3 convertible, which police said was travelling at speed, had collided with a group of pedestrians.

The driver then ran off – police said he may have had a head injury.

The teenage girl was declared dead at the scene while the six pedestrians were taken to hospital.

None of their injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

While our enquiries continue to trace the driver, I would appeal directly to him and request that he comes forward to speak to police.

– Detective Sergeant Jose Qureshi, Metropolitan Police
