A teenage girl is in hospital with a fractured skull and collar bone after a driver mounted a pavement in a hit-and-run.
Police are appealing for information after Friday’s crash at 5.15pm in Ripple Road Barking.
After the crash, which was near the junction with Blake Avenue, the suspect drove away in a Mercedes toward Barking town centre, leaving the 16-year-old with a fractured skill and collar bone along with cuts to her head, legs and arms.
Paramedics took her to an east London hospital, where she is in a serious but stable condition.

The car is likely to have damage to its front as pieces of plastic trim and shard of number plate were found at the scene. Police say the damage is likely to be near the bottom of the car’s front but the bonnet and front wings may also be damaged.
