Detectives investigating a fatal fail to stop collision in Streatham have arrested a man.

The 29-year-old man was arrested on Monday, 4 May, on suspicion of causing death by careless driving and failing to stop at the scene of a collision. He was taken to a south London police station from where he has been bailed to return on a date in early July.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended the scene. The pedestrian, a 33-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police believe they know the identity of the deceased and have informed next of kin. Formal identification has not taken place.

Officers from the Roads and Transport Policing Command are investigating.
