Appeal for witnesses to collision after pedestrian found is injured in Barking

Detectives are appealing for witnesses following a collision between a car and a pedestrian which resulted in serious injury.

Police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 4:02am on Sunday, August 22 after a man was found with a leg injury outside a pub on Ripple Road, Barking.

Officers believe that the 46-year old man was driven into by a car which then left the scene.

Detective Constable Chris Hunt, from East Area CID, said: “This incident has left a man with a significant injury and one which will take a long time for him to recover from.

“A number of people have come forward with information but we believe there were others in the area at the time of the collision who may be able to provide some key details.

“If you were in Ripple Road between 03:45 and 04:00hrs on Sunday please think about whether you saw anything and come forward to police.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police via 101 quoting reference Cad 1411/22Aug.

A 39-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident on Monday, August 23. He was released under investigation pending further enquiries.
