Poilice are now appealing for witnesses

A teenage girl is still in hospital after a hit and run in Beckenham on Monday.

Police were called to Elmers End roundabout, the junction with Upper Elmers End Road and Croydon Road, at around 3pm, where they found the 15-year-old with serious leg injuries.

A Met Police spokesperson said the teenager’s injuries are “life changing but not life threatening”.

London Ambulance Service paramedics and London’s Air Ambulance were both called to the scene and she was taken to a south London hospital.

Her next of kin have been informed while police hunt for the driver of the vehicle, which sped off after the crash.

Scotland Yard made this appeal: “Detectives from the Serious Collisions Investigation Unit (SCIU) are investigating and enquiries are taking place to trace the driver and establish the full circumstances of the incident.

“Any witnesses or anyone with information should contact the SCIU on 020 8285 1574.

“No arrests at this stage.”

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We were called at 2.56pm on Monday, September 4, to Upper Elmers End Road, Beckenham to reports of a road traffic collision.

“We sent an incident response officer, an ambulance crew and a single responder in a car to the scene. London’s Air Ambulance was also dispatched.

“We treated a teenager at the scene for a leg injury and took her to hospital as a priority.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
