Young woman in her 20s dies in collision on the A40 in west London

Range Rover ends up on railway track

A young woman in her 20s died when a Range Rover collided with a Tesla near Park Royal Underground Station in the early hours of Monday morning (22 August) and the impact sent the Range Rover onto the railway track nearby.

Police were called to the collision on the A40 westbound at 3.48am. It is believed the young woman, who died at the scene, had been a passenger in the Range Rover. Her family have been informed. The Tesla is believed to have been stationary when the accident happened.

Police say officers attended along with ambulance colleagues and the driver of the Range Rover driver, a man in his 20s, has been taken to hospital. His condition is described as ‘critical’. The condition of a second Range Rover passenger, a woman in her 20s, is not life-threatening,

A man in his 50s who is believed to have been with the stationary Tesla was treated for injuries that have been assessed as non life-threatening. Police previously stated incorrectly that this person was female but have since updated and corrected their account.

Cordons were put in place following the collision and the Piccadilly Line was partly suspended.

Any witnesses yet to speak with police are asked to call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0208 543 5157.
