Stanmore: Girl Killed After Car Hits Bus Stop
An 11-year-old girl has been killed and her mother critically injured after a pensioner's car veered on to the pavement and crashed into them as they waited at a bus stop.
Officers were called to The Common in Stanmore, northwest London, at 12.20pm on Wednesday following reports that a vehicle had collided with two pedestrians and a stationary bus.
Emergency services pronounced the girl dead at the scene, while her 46-year-old mother was taken to hospital. She remains in a critical condition.
Firemen cut the 69-year-old driver from her Ford Fiesta and she was taken to hospital with minor injuries. No arrests have been made.
The tragic accident came just a day after 12-year-old schoolgirl Annalise Holt was killed and her 11-year-old friend injured when they were hit by a van on a zebra crossing in Shaw, Greater Manchester.
Police investigating the Stanmore incident have appealed for witnesses to get in contact.
Detective Sergeant Chris Osborne said: "We are aware that there were a number of passengers on the bus involved, and a number of other vehicles in the vicinity.
"If you have any information we would like to hear from you so we can work out exactly what happened."
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call 0208 842 1817.
