A 29-year-old woman has died after being struck by two lorries and two cars in a suspected multiple hit-and-run, police said.
The victim, who was from Wandsworth, was struck by an HGV as she crossed the road at a pedestrian crossing in Tulse Hill, south London.
The Metropolitan Police said the driver failed to stop at the scene and the woman was subsequently hit by a second lorry and two cars, with all of their drivers not stopping.
Paramedics were called to the scene at Norwood Road at 6.48am on Monday. The victim was treated at the scene but pronounced dead at 7.21am.
Her family have been informed and they have requested she is not identified at this time as further relatives are yet to be made aware of her death. A post-mortem examination is due to take place at Greenwich mortuary on Tuesday.
Acting detective sergeant Alastair Middleton said: “We want to hear from anyone who travelled from the south circular junctions of Norwood Road going towards the junction of Brixton Hill between the hours of 0630hrs and 0700hrs on the day of the collision. We are particularly interested in any dashcam footage that may have captured some of the incident before or after the collision.
“We are also appealing for anyone who was passing and witnessed the collision and the moments afterwards to contact us immediately.
“Enquiries are continuing to trace all the vehicles involved. A number of actions, including the recovery of local CCTV footage are in hand. I would urge the drivers of all four vehicles to come forward and speak with my team.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at Merton on 020 8543 5157.
