An eight-year-old girl is in critical condition, and a woman in her 40s is fighting for her life after a car collided with a prep school building in Wimbledon, South London, on Thursday, according to the Metropolitan Police.
The London Ambulance Service reported that 16 individuals received treatment at the scene, with 10 of them being transported to the hospital.
The exact number of children and adults among the injured is unknown, but one witness recounted seeing “a small baby in the ambulance who was crying uncontrollably.”
A woman, who was arrested on suspicion of causing the death of a young girl due to dangerous driving after a Land Rover crashed through a school fence, has been released on bail.
In a statement, the Metropolitan Police stated, “The car’s driver, a 46-year-old woman from Wimbledon, was apprehended at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. She was taken to the hospital, where her condition was determined as not life-threatening. She has been granted bail until late July pending further investigation.”
