22-month-old baby in a pushchair has died after a car ploughed into three people in Ruislip

Detectives have appealed for witnesses to come forward as they investigate a fatal collision in Ruislip where a baby died

Police were called at 4.15pm to Eastcote Road, Ruislip, junction with Kings College Road, on Sunday, 25 October, to reports of a collision involving a car and three pedestrians, including a 22-month-old baby in a pushchair.

Officers, including some who were off duty and happened to be in the area, and London Ambulance Service attended. Despite the best efforts of the emergency services, the child was pronounced dead at the scene.

Next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers. A post-mortem will take place in due course.

Another pedestrian, a man in his 30s, was also taken to hospital – he remains in a critical condition.

A man, aged in his 40s, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, suspicion of causing serious injury while driving, and on suspicion of driving whilst unfit through drugs. He remains in custody at this time.

Detectives from the Met’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit are investigating and are appealing for witness or anyone with dashcam or CCTV footage to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Sarah Donegan said:

“Our thoughts are with the child’s parents at what must be an unimaginably difficult time.

“We have launched an investigation to establish the circumstances of what happened and I am asking anyone who was in the vicinity at that time who may have seen something, or has dashcam footage or CCTV, to come forward and help us with our investigation.”

Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of the incident.

Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit ask any witnesses to call 020 8246 9820, or 101 ref CAD 4892/25OCT20. You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
