Police were called to Lavender Hill in Battersea at 8am this morning following a crash with the woman attempting to cross a busy road.
The woman died at the scene.
“It happened before we arrived at work but there are lots of police officers and numerous police vans,” says James Bailey.
“We have been told it was a fatality and that the woman was crossing the road when it happened.”
Alex Robinson, 32, was on his way to Clapham Junction when he got engrossed into the aftermath of the crash:
“Normally I walk down Lavender Hill but when I got to the junction outside Lavender Hill police station it was sealed off,” he said.
“There were police cars everywhere and the street was closed off down to the Post Office.
“A big lorry was parked outside Battersea Library and there were quite a few officers around.”
A London Ambulance Service spokeswoman said medics arrived on the scene four minutes after the crash.
She added: “We sent an ambulance crew, a single responder in a car, an advanced paramedic and an incident response officer to the scene.
“We also dispatched London’s Air Ambulance. The first of our medics arrived at the scene in under four minutes.
“Sadly, despite the best efforts of our crews, a woman died at the scene.”
