Two pensioners were killed in a car crash in front of a Harrow school.
Residents described a scene of chaos after a blue Renault Clio hit two women on Sudbury Hill at the junction with Greenford Road, Harrow at 2.30pm last Thursday.
Alice Cullen, 72, of Elm Park Avenue, Wembley, and Helen Brady, 70, of St Andrews Drive, Wembley, were both pronounced dead at the scene after suffering multiple injuries.
The driver, who was named locally as Enid Mills, of Abbey Close, Pinner Green, is also in her 70s.
Ms Mills was airlifted to the Royal London Hospital, in East London, and discharged on Friday.
Mrs Cullen's grandson was too upset to speak when contacted by the Observer.
Neighbours said she was a diabetic and they often helped when she became unwell.
A 65-year-old man, of Sudbury Hill, who did not wish to be named, saw the aftermath of the incident as he returned home from shopping.
He said: "I have lived here 38 years and I have never seen anything like this.
"I came round the corner and there were two bodies lying in the road and they were quite dismembered, legs were everywhere and blood.
"The impact of the car must have been really strong as it looked like the bodies had fallen from the sky.
"I saw a woman's hand lying a few metres from her body and it still had a glove on it.
"I went to talk to the driver and she was just sitting there; she looked like she didn't know what day of the week it was."
Police cordoned off the area and Sudbury Hill was closed for more than five hours. Buses were diverted and the incident caused traffic jams throughout the borough.
Nurses from the Clementine Churchill Hospital, in Sudbury Hill, rushed to help the victims.
Sudha Patel, a healthcare assistant, saw the aftermath of the scene.
She said: "I walk past here every day and cars come down here really fast and it is right by a school. One of our own staff was knocked over on a bike a few weeks ago."
Post mortems at Northwick Park Hospital on Friday confirmed the two women died from multiple injuries.
