An elderly pedestrian has died after being trapped beneath a van on a road in Feltham on Saturday (October 29) afternoon.
The incident happened outside the Guild Medical Practice in Harlington Road East at around 3.40pm.
Firefighters were called to free the 78-year-old man, who was pinned beneath the wheels of the vehicle being driven by a 73-year-old woman.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said the pedestrian was not breathing or conscious while he was freed, and that a paramedic from the London Air Ambulance team pronounced him dead at the scene a short while later at 4.15pm.
Police were called by London Ambulance Service to Harlington Road East at the junction with Brainton Avenue. They say the pedestrian’s next of kin have been informed but he has not been formally identified.
The motorist stopped at the scene and has not been arrrested.
A stretch of Harlington Road East was closed as a result, with a police van parked near The Airman pub to block the road.
Any witnesses or anyone with information should contact police on 101
Earlier the same day three people were taken to hospital when a police motorbike collided into a man and child in Earls Court.
