A child was injured in a seven-car crash hit-and-run in Thornton Heath.

The 11-year-old girl, a passenger in one of the cars, was treated at the scene in Woodville Road just before midnight on Wednesday, February 15.

Two cars crashed before colliding with five parked vehicles in the street, near the junction with Natal Road.

One of the cars failed to stop, but officers located the driver a short while after and he was interviewed under caution.

London Ambulance Service treated the girl for minor injuries.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “He [the driver] has been reported for driving without due car and attention, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and driving without valid insurance.

“Enquiries continue.”
