A woman was hit by a car and garden wall smashed in South Woodford.
Three fire engines and 14 firefighters were called to reports of a car crash near Woodford House, in Woodford Road, at around 9pm on Tuesday, February 12.
There they found a pedestrian, a 39-year-old woman, suffering a leg injury after being hit by a car that careered through the housing block’s garden wall.
She was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to an east London hospital.
The driver fled before emergency services arrived.
Photos from the scene show that abandoned car has now been removed, while the garden wall lies in tatters.
A London Ambulance Service (LAS) spokeswoman said: “We were called at 8.55pm on Tuesday to Woodford Road to reports of a road traffic collision involving a pedestrian.
“We treated a woman and took her to hospital.”
The Met Police said that no arrests have been made and inquiries continue.
