A 25-year-old man is fighting for his life after a Mercedes was driven into a group of five pedestrians on Bromley Road, near Catford bus garage, in Bellingham, on Sunday morning.
Four men and a woman were treated at the scene before being rushed to hospital. The Metropolitan police confirmed that a 35-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man are now in what is described as a serious but stable condition while a 25-year-old man remains in a critical condition. Two other men, aged 36 and 46, sustained minor injuries which are not considered life-threatening.
According to the police, the driver was arrested “on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving. He was also arrested on suspicion of drink drive before being taken to a south London hospital with a head injury.”
After being discharged from the hospital he was taken into custody at a south London police station from where he has since been bailed to return, pending further enquiries, on a date in early May.
Police are investigating and ask for anyone who witnessed the collision at 8.20am to call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit’s witness appeal line on 020 8285 1574 or via 101.
