Four people died and one-fifth of the people were seriously injured Londonpath of five separate incidents over a period of only 24 hours.

The victims ranged in age from 16 to 41 and two of the incidents are being treated as a fight.

The first came when a 23-year-old motorcyclist died after crashing what is believed to be a vehicle in Cricklewood, north London, shortly before 4:40am on Friday.

Another motorcyclist, 28, suffered life-threatening injuries in a collision with a car in Bromley, south-east London, at 7:25pm.

Just 20 minutes later, a 16-year-old boy was killed in a collision with a bus, again in Cricklewood.

Then, just after 9:20pm, a 20-year-old motorcyclist died after a collision with a car in Chadwell Heath, east London.

The driver and passenger in the car, a gray Audi TT, fled the scene.

In the fifth incident, a 41-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene following another suspected crash in Southall, west London, at around 1.55am on Saturday.

Chief Inspector Lora John, the Metropolitan Police’s road and traffic police commander, said none of the incidents were believed to be directly related.

But she added: ‘The overall picture is disturbing and tragic.

‘My thoughts are with the families of those who have lost their lives. They will be supported by professional police officers in the difficult days ahead.

‘In two incidents, the driver did not stay at the scene. Urgent requests are underway to track them down.

‘The Met is committed to working with partners and the public to ensure that London’s roads are safe for all.

‘Days like these are challenging and upsetting, demonstrating clearly how much we all need to do to prevent this needless loss of life.’
