A teenager has been left in a critical condition after being hit by the wing mirror of a lorry in Chiswick yesterday afternoon (9th October).

The collision occurred at around 4.10pm on the A316 northbound, approximately 100 metres south of the junction with Staveley Road.

A 15 year old boy standing on the pavement at a bus stop was struck by a nearside wing mirror of a vehicle travelling north bound - see image below.

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 Daf LF 7.5 tonne lorry did not stop at the scene, heading towards the Hogarth Roundabout and the A4.

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.
