FURTHER details have emerged about two traffic collisions which left one woman dead and two men fighting for their lives in hospital.
The woman was waiting at a bus stop in Streatham when she was hit by a car involved in a collision in Norbury a few minutes earlier.
It is now understood that at around 5.20am yesterday a Volkswagen Passat car veered off the road and collided with a tree in London Road at the junction with Ederline Avenue in Norbury.
It is believed that an Audi A3 vehicle stopped at the scene of the incident and the driver got out of the car.
Plain clothes officers, who had been on duty nearby, identified themselves as police. When they arrived at the scene, the driver of the Audi drove away in his car.
Officers stayed with the injured driver of the Volkswagen and the man was taken to hospital where his condition is critical but stable.
At around 5.30pm the same Audi crashed into a bus stop on Streatham High Road. A woman in her 30s, who was standing at the stop, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Her family have been informed but she has yet to be formally identified.
A post mortem is due to be held at Greenwich Mortuary at 10am today (Sunday).
A man, also believed to be standing at the bus stop, was taken by ambulance to a south London hospital, where his condition is critical.
The driver of the Audi abandoned his car and left the scene before police officers arrived.
Officers from Croydon and Lambeth are investigating the incidents. No one has been arrested.
The Road Death Investigation Unit at Catford is assisting the investigation.
Anyone with information should call police on 020 8285 1574. To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
