A man has died after being hit by a bus in Oxford Street in the early hours of Sunday (April 9).
Metropolitan Police was called at around 2am following reports of a collision between a Route N98 bus and a pedestrian, at the junction with Harewood Place.
Police officers and a London Ambulance Service crew attended the scene and found an injured man in his late 30s, who was pronounced dead minutes later.
A spokesman for the force said on Sunday that the man’s next-of-kin have yet to be informed. Formal identification and a post-mortem exam are yet to take place.
The bus driver stopped at the scene and is assisting detectives from the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, the spokesman said. No arrests have been made.
“Despite the collision occurring in the early hours of the morning, there would have been a number of people in the vicinity at the time,” the spokesman added.
“Detectives are appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward.”
Anyone with information about the collision should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at Merton Traffic Garage on 020 8543 5157 or via Twitter at @MetCC.
