Witnesses have recalled the horrific scene after a woman was killed in a hit-and-run involving a lorry in Harlesden on Friday.

The victim, who is in her 60s, died at the scene in Manor Park Road following the crash just after 12.30pm.

The driver of the heavy goods vehicle did not stop at the scene and the lorry was found abandoned nearby.

A witness told the Times she arrived at the scene just after the crash happened and saw the woman covered in blood with people screaming for help.

She added: “It was horrific. That poor woman.”

Another resident said: “It’s really sad. There was blood everywhere.

“I have never seen anything like it.”

A spokeswoman for the London Ambulance Service told the Times: “We were called at 12:33pm to Manor Park Road to reports of a road traffic collision.

“We sent a single responder in a car, an ambulance crew and an incident response officer to the scene.

“Sadly a person died at the scene.”
