Good Samaritans who stopped to help a dying woman after a horrific hit-and-run crash in London’s East End are being sought by police.
Scotland Yard today said it wanted to trace the men who helped an off-duty police officer trying in vain to save the woman’s life after the crash.
Officers also want to track down the drivers of a transit van and a Vauxhall Zafira who they say would have witnessed the collision in Cannon Street Road, near the junction with the Highway, on December 10.
Police say the woman, 37, was hit by a can just after 9pm and was left with critical head injuries at the scene outside St George-in-the-East parish church. The van driver did not stop.
Despite medics’ battles to save her, she was pronounced dead at the scene shortly afterwards.
Anyone with information is being asked to call the Met’s Roads and Transport Command on 020 8597 4874 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
