Police have launched a murder probe after a car “deliberately mowed down” two men, killing one in East London.
A 52-year-old man died in hospital this evening after reports of a car ploughing into the pedestrians at 12.40am on Sunday morning.
A second victim aged 32 remains in hospital with serious injuries. His condition is not critical.
The Metropolitan Police say there was a fight on Leystonstone High Road shortly before the smash.
“At this early stage, it is appears that this was a deliberate act by the driver of the car,” said Detective Chief Inspector Mark Wrigley.
“There had been an altercation in the street prior to this incident and I am appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information who has not yet come forward, to contact police.”
