A police officer sobbed as she announced the loss of an eight-year-old child in this morning’s terrible collision in Wimbledon.
After the collision, police stated that a woman in her 40s was detained on suspicion of causing death through unsafe driving.
The event left 15 people wounded and one person dead, an eight-year-old child.
Following reports of a vehicle colliding with a structure, police were summoned to The Study Prep School on Camp Road in Wimbledon.
Images from the site show a huge Land Rover close to where it collided with the wall and came to a halt. Locals informed reporters that the girls’ school was holding an end-of-year tea party outside.
Clair Kelland, the Met Police PC Commander for South West London, was obviously moved as she delivered the awful news.
She said that they were called shortly before 10 a.m. after a car collided with a building at the Study Prep school on Camp Road. A large number of their officers, as well as paramedics from London Air Ambulance and London Ambulance Service, were dispatched to the scene. Their officers, along with colleagues from other emergency services, provided first aid to a number of wounded individuals. Unfortunately, an eight-year-old girl died at the scene, she said, her voice cracking. Their hearts go out to her family at this very difficult moment.
As one might anticipate, this tragedy has had a significant impact on the school community, according to John Tucker, the head of governors. So yet, the school has refused to speak more.
Mr. Tucker was standing next to the school’s headmistress, Helen Lowe, who was spotted shaking hands with the school’s new headmistress, Sharon Maher.
Air ambulances and 15 ground ambulances were sent to the school after a serious emergency was declared.
They dispatched numerous resources, including specialist critical care paramedics, London’s air ambulance, and 15 ambulances, said John Martin of the London Ambulance Service.
A major incident has been declared. On the scene, they treated 16 individuals. Unfortunately, one eight-year-old child perished, as they’ve learned.
The Prime Minister’s deepest condolences are with the family of the girl who tragically lost her life, Downing Street said in a statement. His sympathies are with all those wounded and engaged in this morning’s horrible incident in Wimbledon.
This will have been an awful event for all of the kids, staff, and parents.
