Woman killed in suspected hit-and-run in Brixton

A woman has been killed in a hit-and-run in south London.

The victim, in her early 20s, was struck by a speeding car on Brixton Hill in the early hours of Saturday, police said.

Paramedics tried to revive the woman but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Metropolitan police said investigators were searching for the car, believed to be a dark-coloured Volkswagen, possibly a Golf, and its driver.

Officers were called to the junction of Brixton Hill and Dumbarton Road at about 12.30am.

“The driver of the vehicle, which was travelling at speed, did not stop at the scene and inquiries are under way to trace it,” the force said, adding that the bonnet of the car could be damaged.

Any witnesses or people with information were asked to call 101.
