The circumstances of the tragedy are still unclear. A driver hit a group of children outside a school in Loughton, northeast London, United Kingdom, on Monday afternoon, December 2.
A 12-year-old child was killed, five people were injured. These are four teenagers aged 13 to 16 and a 53-year-old woman. No vital prognosis is made for them.
One father, whose daughter was hit by the car, told Essex Live about the drama:
“A Ford KA was mounted on the sidewalk behind her. Her friend was sent back to the hood before another boy was hit hard. The car started on the road and the police arrived quickly. My daughter is safe, but the mirror cut my daughter off. Her friend was ejected from the hood. It was awful to be a witness. Everyone is in shock. »
The man behind the wheel fled, but police announced that they arrested a 51-year-old male suspect on the night of Monday, December 2 to Tuesday, December 3. He is accused of murder and several attempted murders.
Several students brought flowers in front of the school this morning to pay tribute to their deceased classmate.
