A WOMAN who died after being hit by a car which had earlier been involved in an incident in Norbury has been named as Vanessa Chango-Alvarez.
Ms Chango-Alvarez was standing at a bus stop in Streatham High Road when she was hit by an Audi A3 at 5.30am on Saturday.
It is believed the 31-year-old, who is also known by her first name Veronica, had been staying at her mother's home in the same road.
A post mortem held today (Sunday) at Greenwich Mortuary gave her cause of death as multiple injuries.
A 51-year-old man, who is also believed to have been standing at the bus stop, was taken to a south London hospital where he remains in a critical condition.
Ten minutes earlier the same Audi A3 had stopped at the scene of another crash in Norbury, Croydon.
At around 5.20am a Volkswagen Passat car was in collision with a tree in London Road at the junction of Ederline Avenue.
When plain clothes police officers, who had been on duty nearby, arrived at the scene the driver of the Audi drove off in his car.
Ten minutes later he crashed into the bus stop but fled before police arrived.
Police stayed with the injured driver of the Volkswagen, a 31-year-old male, who was taken to hospital. He is now in a stable condition.
The Road Death Investigation Unit, based at Hampton, is investigating the incidents, together with officers from Croydon and Lambeth.
Anyone with information that may assist police should call 020 8285 1574 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
