A young woman is fighting for life after a car ploughed into two pedestrians in an alleged hit-and-run in south west London.

Police and paramedics raced to the scene of the crash, outside the Grand Union pub in Wandsworth High Road, at about 1am on Sunday.

The women, who are both 28 years old, were rushed to a south London hospital.

One woman suffered serious injuries and remains in a critical condition, while the other sustained minor injuries.

The driver - who was in a dark coloured car - failed to stop at the scene and continued along Wandsworth Plain.

Police believe the crash may have been witnessed by a number of people who were leaving the pub to go home.

Detectives from the Met's Roads and Transport Policing Command are investigating. They would like to speak with anyone who witnessed the collision or saw a dark coloured car speeding away from the area.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 020 8543 5157 or via @MetCC
