Police are appealing for help from the public to trace a taxi driver following a road traffic collision in North End Road early on the morning of Saturday October 4

They say officers were called at 3.10am in response to reports of a vehicle in collision with a pedestrian. On arrival officers discovered a 39 year-old man suffering head injuries. He was taken by the London Ambulance Service to a central London hospital, where he remains in a stable condition.

It is thought at this early stage that the driver had spoken to the pedestrian about a possible fair. The driver may not have known the collision happened as he pulled away.

The incident is being investigated by the Serious Collision Investigation Unit based at Merton Traffic Garage.

Detective Constable Nicola Linton, said: "We are very keen to hear from the taxi driver who stopped to speak to a 39 year-old white man on North End Road, just south of Halford Road, on Saturday, October 4 at about 3am."

The driver, or anyone with any information about the collision, is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0208 543 5157 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
