Girl, 16, dead and six injured after driver of sports car ploughs into group 'at speed'

Post by Thorin on Sun Jul 02, 2017 12:54 pm

Police are hunting the driver of a sports car which ploughed into pedestrians, leaving a 16-year-old girl dead and six others injured. The convertible is believed to have accidentally veered off the road at a corner and hit seven teenagers on a residential street in Croydon, south London. Officers have launched a hunt for the driver of the red Audi A3, who fled after the crash on Pixton Way at around 1.30am on Sunday.

A Met Police spokesman said: "At this early stage it is believed the car was travelling at speed before it lost control at a corner and collided with the pedestrians.

"At this time there is nothing to suggest the car was driven deliberately at the group.

"The driver of the car, a man, fled from the scene on foot following the collision. Inquiries are under way to trace and arrest him."

One girl died at the scene while six other injured teenagers were taken to a number of London hospitals.

When will drivers learn that speeding can cause deaths, and in this case it did.

Seems he lost control of the car, those poor people.
