Driver ‘loses control’ in Walthamstow, knocks over two pedestrians

Resident Thomas Murphy, 74, was woken by the sound of the crash to find the teen lying injured by his doorstep. He said: "I had just gone to bed when I heard the bang. I came downstairs to see what had happened and one of them was lying in my front garden covered in blood. The ambulance teams were on the scene very quickly and took him off. He didn't look in a good way. I heard another person was thrown into my neighbour's garden too."

Neighbours claim that the driver of the car fled after the crash, which happened near the junction with Coppermill Lane.

Several house fronts were damaged in the crash, as was a nearby bus stop.
