The fatal collision between a pedestrian and a bus in Hammersmith Broadway is the latest serious accident to occur at the junction over recent years.
A 78-year-old woman died at the spot on Sunday (October 8) evening, with police now investigating the tragedy.
getwestlondon readers called the crossing, directly outside the Tube station entrance and shopping centre, a “nightmare crossing” and "death trap”.
The fatal collision occurred at around 5pm, with London Ambulance Service and air ambulance rushing to the scene.
However, the pedestrian, who has not yet been named , was pronounced dead around 30 minutes later.
The bus involved was a 220 route heading towards Willesden Junction.
In July 2015, a route 220 bus collided with a police car in Hammersmith Broadway as the emergency vehicle made its way to a stabbing at the scene.
Two officers and the bus driver sustained injuries and all three were taken to hospital by ambulance.
None of them sustained life-threatening injuries.
And in July this year, a pensioner was taken to hospital in a “critical” condition after being hit by a police car in Hammersmith Broadway.
This incident occurred on July 12, shortly before 6pm, while the police car was responding to an emergency call.
A Scotland Yard spokesperson confirmed at the time that the police car was “travelling on blues and twos at the time of the collision”.
