A man has died after being hit by a car in a residential Upminster road this morning.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed they were called to a fatal collision at the junction of Gaynes Park Road and Elm Avenue at around 7.55am.

Crews from the London Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade also attended but the victim - a man aged in his 60s - was pronounced dead at the scene. Next of kin have been informed.

A Met spokesman said: “At this early stage it is believed the deceased was attending to a car that had been involved in a minor collision at the location.

“While he was at the scene a second car was in collision with the stationary car causing the man to be injured.”

Both drivers stopped at the scene.

There have been no arrests.

A London Fire Brigade spokesman confirmed they were also called to the scene and had worked to release a person who had become trapped under a vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Roads and Transport Policing Command on 020 8597 4874.

Enquiries continue.
