• Detectives are appealing for witnesses to a collision in Streatham
    which has left a 16-year-old boy with life-threatening injuries.

    Police were called at 2317hs on Friday, 8 May, to a collision
    involving a cyclist in Streatham High Road, SW16.

    Officers attended the scene along with London Ambulance Service and
    found a critically injured 16-year-old boy. He has been taken to
    hospital where he remains in a life-threatening condition.

    Officers believe the boy had been cycling on the High Road when he was
    in collision with a car and, seconds later, struck by a second car
    travelling close behind.

    The drivers of both cars failed to stop at the scene. Officers
    investigated and arrested two men at separate locations in the local
    area. The men - both aged in their 20s – are in custody at south
    London police stations. It is not thought that the two drivers were
    known to each other, but enquiries continue to establish the full

    The investigation is being led by detectives from the Roads and
    Transport Policing Command.

    They are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage
    that may assist the investigation to call the Serious Collision
    Investigation Unit at Catford on 020 8285 1574.
