Flowers have been laid at the spot on Chiswick Lane where an elderly woman died after being hit by a car on Friday (November 25th).

Dilys Fouracres, believed to be in her eighties, was at the bus shelter when the incident occurred at around 9 a.m.

She had visited a corner shop near her home minutes before crossing the road and walking towards the bus stop outside Homefields Recreation Ground.

It is understood she lived in Wilton Avenue with her daughter.

The vehicle involved in the collision, a Touran, was travelling along Chiswick Lane when it is believed it swerved to avoid a silver car pulling out of a junction. The car mounted the footpath and collided with the woman.
Railings along the Homefields Recreation Ground were also badly damaged by the impact.

The car stopped at the scene. No arrests were made.

Officers are keen to trace the silver car, believed to be an 'estate' model, which may have witnessed the collision. The car may have been driven by a female with shoulder length hair. The vehicle was last seen travelling south along Chiswick Lane, towards the A4. This vehicle did not stop at the scene.

One local young man who was walking along the footpath narrowly avoided being hit. He jumped out of the way as he saw the car swerve in his direction and then heard a loud bang as the car mounted the pavement.

Chiswick Lane was closed for much of the morning following the incident. It was reopened by 14:45 in the afternoon. A London Air Ambulance helicopter landed on Homefield Recreation Ground to assist .

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Road Death Investigation Unit based at Hampton Traffic Garage on 020 8247 6935.
