Man arrested after car injures pedestrian in East Ham
A pedestrian is recovering in hospital today after she was knocked down by a car that mounted the pavement in East Ham.
The female victim was struck at the junction of Barking Road and St Bartholomew’s Road at about 6.15pm yesterday.
Part of Barking Road was closed for around two hours, causing lengthy tailbacks, as paramedics treated her injuries and fire crews cleared spilt fuel from the road.
She was taken to Newham General Hospital by ambulance. Her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
Police have arrested an 18-year-old man on suspicion of dangerous driving and failing to stop.
