Police are looking for witnesses following a woman being hit by a bus on Eden Street in Kingston, yesterday, Monday 20 May.

The police received reports of a bus colliding with a female pedestrian at around 8:50am on Monday.

Police officers, the London Ambulance Service and London's Air Ambulance attended the scene, with the latter landing in the nearby Fairfield Recreation Ground.

The woman, aged in her 20s, was taken to hospital for treatment where she remains. 

Her condition is not thought to be life-threatening, and her next of kin have been informed.

Eden Street was closed to all traffic while emergency services investigated the scene, later reopening at around 4:40pm.

A Met Police spokesperson said: "The driver was arrested for causing Injury by Careless Driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident."

They have since been bailed pending further enquiries.

The Met Police's Serious Collision Investigation Unit investigate and are asking anyone with CCTV of the incident, dash cam footage or who witnessed the incident, to make contact via 020 8543 5157 or 101 quoting CAD 1733/20MAY2024.
