A woman in her 80s has been recovering in hospital after being struck by a car in west-central London, a medical official said on Friday.
“We are very pleased with the outcome and hope that she will be well,” Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
The woman, identified only as K, was taken to a specialist trauma unit and treated for chest pain, a source at the hospital said.
“She is currently being treated at our intensive care unit in a stable condition and has no previous history of cardiac arrest,” the source said.
Police are investigating the crash, which happened on Sunday at around 8:30am local time (19:30 GMT), a London Ambulance Service spokesman said.
No-one was injured in the crash and the road was closed for several hours, a spokeswoman for the Met Police said.
The vehicle involved was a light truck.
It was later towed from the scene, a spokesperson said.
