POLICE are appealing for witnesses and any drivers with dash-cam footage to come forward after a child was seriously injured by a moped rider in Acton on Tuesday (8).

The collision was at the junction of The Vale and Agnes Road. An air ambulance was directed to the scene.

A two-year-old girl was taken to hospital, where she remains in a critical condition.

Det Sgt Nush Puvitharan said: “The girl and her family were crossing the street at traffic lights while other vehicles waited.

“Some of those road users would have seen the incident, or may have recorded the events on dash-cam footage. If so, I would urge them to come forward and speak to police.

“This information could prove vital in ensuring we can piece together exactly what happened.”

The rider of the moped, a 19-year-old man, stopped at the scene. He was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and driving under the influence of drugs. He was taken into custody where he remains.
