A teenager has been left in a critical condition after being hit by the wing mirror of a lorry in Chiswick this afternoon (9th October).
The collision occurred at shortly before 4.15pm on the A316 northbound, approximately 100 metres south of the junction with Staveley Road.
A 16-year-old boy standing on the pavement at a bus stop was struck by a nearside wing mirror of a vehicle travelling north bound.
He was taken to an east London hospital by London's Air Ambulance suffering head injuries.
The vehicle, believed is believed to have been a 7.5 tonne or larger lorry did not stop at the scene, heading towards the Hogarth Roundabout and the A4.
Officers from the Hampton Traffic Garage are appealing for anyone who may have seen the collision or may subsequently have seen the vehicle involved.
It is believed the nearside wing mirror glass is still in place but the outer case will be missing. There were two black nearside wing mirror casings left at the scene.
Any witnesses or anyone with any information should call police on 020 8941 9011.
The incident caused severe traffic problems this evening with the A316 being closed between Hartington Road and the Hogarth Roundabout in both directions.
Police are advising motorists to avoid the area if possible.
