Officers said she was hit by a blue BMW 330 saloon car as she crossed Bow Road at the pelican crossing near the junction with Campbell Road around 2.20am.

The London Ambulance Service and the air ambulance attended but the 19-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision just after 3am.
