Ten-year-old boy out of hospital after hit and run incident in Stamford Hill


Security group Shomrim has appealed for information after a ten-year-old boy was the victim of a hit and run incident.

The boy, whose family name is Friedman and lives in Stamford Hill, was on a scooter when he was hit by a car on March 8 and lost consciousness. His scooter was broken in half.

He spent two days in hospital and has made a full recovery. “He is OK, but shaken and traumatised,” said a Shomrim spokesperson.

Initially people who came to the boy’s help did not realise he had been hit by a car, but CCTV footage showed a small, dark-coloured sports car hit him and carry on down the road without stopping.

Shomrim tweeted an appeal for information yesterday which read: “#HitAndRun Appeal: On 08/03 at 7:20pm a 10 y/o boy was hit by a car on Ravesdale Road #N16 & lost consciousness.”

The incident happened outside 102 Castlewood Road, by the junction with Ravensdale Road in Stamford Hill on Tuesday evening.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said:

“Police were called at 19:38hrs on 8 March to Castlewood Road N16 to reports of a car in collision with a 10-year-old boy on a pedal scooter. The vehicle, described as a dark hatchback, did not stop at the scene.

“The boy was not injured but taken to the Royal London Hospital as a precaution.

“Enquiries continue, anyone with information can call police on 101.”

Shomrim have requested that anyone with information call them on 0207 118 7756 or contact the police on 101.
