Police were called at approximately 5:05 pm yesterday to Eastcote Lane, at the junction with Brookside Close, following reports of a black Ford Focus in collision with a pedestrian.
The pedestrian, believed to be in his late 80s, was taken to a central London hospital suffering from a head injury. His condition is serious at this time.
