Witnesses urged to come forward two months after the incident in East Dulwich Road


Police are appealing for witnesses to a hit and run as the victim is still in hospital two months after the collision in East Dulwich.

On Sunday March 29 police were called to the junction of East Dulwich Road and Worlingham Road at 6.30am where a moped rider had been left seriously injured.

The driver of a black Ford Fiesta, believed to have hit the 41-year-old victim, had fled the scene.

The moped-rider from Hertfordshire was taken to hospital with a serious leg injury and remains there in a stable condition to this day.

It is understood the Fiesta left the scene via the Goose Green roundabout onto Lordship Lane heading towards Sydenham and was later found abandoned in Lapse Wood Walk, Forest Hill, having sustained significant front end damage.

The car was reported stolen later that same day from an address in Forest Hill.

Detective Constable Neal Pryce, from the South East Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to, or anyone with any information about, the collision to contact us.

“We are also still keen to hear from anyone who would have seen a significantly damaged car being abandoned in Lapse Wood Walk, SE23.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 020 8285 1574.

On Sunday March 29 a twenty-year-old woman was arrested at an address in Sydenham on suspicion of dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of a collision. She was taken into custody at a south London police station and has been bailed pending further enquiries. She has since been eliminated from enquiries and released with no further action.
