Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision outside Brockwell Park which left a teenager in a critical condition.
Officers were called to the scene at the junction of Croxted Road and Norwood Road just after 4.30am on New Year’s Eve.
A dark coloured Vauxhall Ziafra is thought to have collided with an e-scooter.
Alongside the London Air Ambulance, officers found the rider of the e-scooter, a 19-year-old man, seriously injured. He was rushed to hospital, where he remains in a critical condition.
“I am particularly keen to hear from anyone who has dashcam footage of this incident, or who witnessed the collision personally,” said Detective Constable Croucher of the Met’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit.
“The dark coloured Vauxhall Zafira that struck the pedestrian on the scooter was equipped with a roof box and will have suffered damage on the front passenger side as a result of the collision.
“Did you see the vehicle before, during or after the collision? Are you the driver of the vehicle? Do you know who the driver is? If you can help please do the right thing and get in touch.”
Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call the collision hotline on 0208 285 1574, 101 quoting 1053/31DEC.
