A mother has been left critically ill and baby daughter is also seriously injured after being hit by a car as they used a zebra crossing in Finchley.

The woman in her 20s and her 18-month-old baby, who was in a pushchair, are being treated in hospital following the crash on East End Road just after 6pm on Friday 6 September 2013.

Police said the driver of the car, a man in his 70s, stopped at the scene and was not arrested.

London Ambulance Service and London's Air Ambulance both attended and the pair were both taken by ambulance to an east London hospital.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: "Both remain in hospital; the woman in a critical condition, the child in a serious condition.

"Collision investigators from the Traffic Garage at Northolt are carrying out enquiries into the circumstances of the incident.

"The collision occurred as the woman and child were using a zebra crossing.

"Officers are appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time of the collision, who hasn't already spoken to police, to contact them."
