Man Hit By Police Van Responding to 999 Call in Isleworth
35-year-old died after collision on London Road
A 35-year-old man who was injured after being hit by a police van in Isleworth on Tuesday night (8 December) has died.
The collision occurred shortly before 10:55pm on London Road, near the junction with Thornbury Road.
The pedestrian - a 35-year-old man - was taken by ambulance to a central London hospital where he subsequently died from his injuries. Next of kin have been informed but officers await formal identification.
The coroner has been informed and an inquest will be opened and adjourned in due course. As is routine, the Metropolitan Police Service Directorate of Professional Standards and the Independent Police Complaints Commission have been informed.
Detectives from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit are carrying out enquiries into the circumstances of the collision.
At this early stage, it is understood the two officers in the van - driver and operator, both PCs - were responding to a 999 call in Brentford. The van's 'blue lights' were in use without sirens; however this will form part of the collision investigation. Neither police officer was injured.
Any witnesses are asked to call the witness line at the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at Merton on 020 8543 5157.
