Detectives continue to appeal for information and witnesses after two women were injured following a fail to stop collision in Edmonton.

Police were called at around 23:15hrs (correct) on Friday, 26 May to reports of a car in collision with two pedestrian in Bury Street, N9.

The pedestrians - a 32-year-old woman and a 62-year-old woman - were taken by the London Ambulance Service to an east London hospital where they both remain.

The 32-year-old woman is described as being in a critical condition and the 62-year-old woman is now in a stable condition.

Detectives from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit are investigating and they have established that the injured women were crossing the road when a car, believed to be a light coloured Mercedes estate, collide with them. The driver of the car failed to stop at the scene.

Detective Sergeant John Woods, said: "Although this incident occurred during the night there would have been a number of road users who would have seen the incident itself or the events leading up to it.

"The injured women are fortunate not to have lost their lives but sadly there is a possibility they will be left with life changing injuries. It is of paramount importance that the person responsible for inflicting such injuries on these women is caught immediately.

"The vehicle involved would have sustained significant damage to its front, bonnet and windscreen, if you have seen a vehicle matching this description I would urge you to get in contact with us."
