Shortly after Shatha Ali's death in Holborn, another fatality on a one-way system, either on the west or east side of this junction:
An investigation is underway following a fatal road traffic collision in Newham.
Police were called at approximately 13:35hrs on Monday, 21 March to reports of a van in collision with an e-scooter in Green Street, E13.
Officers and London Ambulance Service attended.
The rider of the e-scooter, a girl believed aged 14, was treated at the scene but died from her injuries.
I rode past the scene on Lambeth Bridge North side where the deceased and her 3 fur kids were struck down last weekend, blue tent was up and all roads leading to the roundabout was shut to motorised vehicles.
Seen the blue tent before and I was hoping for the best.
This sounds horrible
Very sad and very odd - bus driver allegedly leaving scene of fatal collision. RIP unknown pedestrian.
Another hit and run, six people injured on Green Lanes yesterday.
This is one of the horror scenarios, when a car goes off the road, quite often in a motorway-like environment, and it's not noticed until much later, so that whoever may initially have survived a crash doesn't get help:
It happens along motorways from time to time. There have been cases in which there was no damage to crash barriers because a driver for some reason shot over them and their remains weren't discovered until months later.
Having read various news reports, it's probably most likely that they were in this copse of trees:
It's really awful about this crash that the three who died could perhaps have been saved had they been discovered earlier.
It is very reminiscent of the crashes in rural areas of Europe in which disproportionately young people die who were or had been on nights out. I think these were worst in the 80s and 90s, but I haven't kept track of what has happened since.
RIP young folk, and wishing the other two a rapid recovery.
I was struck by the delay of nearly 48 between the crash and discovery, despite multiple early missing person reports.
Travelling after enjoying a night out seems hazardous...
I came across a large roadside memorial related to an incident on the 20th March, with photographs of the victim, but no name, and a lot of flowers and lights here last night:
Just another case in which there is little independent reporting and those news web-sites only really repeat what the police released about the incident.
