A woman remains in hospital after a hit-and-run road collision outside Stratford station.

Police and paramedics were called to the scene in Great Eastern Road, by the bus station, at about 12.15pm today (Tuesday).

The pedestrian was reportedly struck by an Audi on the zebra crossing, according to Met Police.

London Ambulance Service, who dispatched an advanced paramedic, two cycle responders and an ambulance crew to the scene, rushed her to “a major trauma centre as a priority”, a spokeswoman said. Emergency services await an update on her condition.

The Audi driver did not stop at the scene, according to police.

Buses serving Stratford are delayed following the collision, Transport for London (TfL) tweeted earlier this afternoon.

“Bus passes are accepted on tube services from Mile End to Leytonstone, and Stratford to Canning Town,” read a message posted on the TfL Bus Alerts Twitter page.

“TfL Rail are accepting passes between Stratford & Romford.”

Newham Police, investigating, ask anyone who witnessed the incident to call 101 quoting reference CAD3431/26JUN.
