Police were called at 01:02hrs on Sunday, 12 May, to a collision between a car and a pedestrian on The Roundway near the junction with Risley Avenue, N17.

Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended, but despite their best efforts the pedestrian – a man aged in his 40s – was sadly pronounced deceased at the scene. The man’s family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

Detectives from the Roads and Transport Policing Command are leading the investigation. They have been contacted by someone who was travelling in an Uber at the time of the collision.

Detectives need to speak with the driver – who collected a fare at about 00:50hrs on Walpole Road – as he may have captured the collision on dash cam.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or may have footage or information that could help are asked to call the witness appeal line on 020 8246 9820 or via 101 quoting reference CAD 473/12May.

Four men are believed to have been travelling in the car at the time of the collision. All were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. They have since been bailed pending further enquiries.
