A man remains in custody after a woman and a boy were killed when a car being chased by police mounted a pavement in south-east London.
Three girls are in hospital with multiple injuries after the crash in Penge on Wednesday afternoon.
A witness said the car was being chased by two police vehicles when the driver “lost control and ploughed into a family”.
The Metropolitan Police arrested a 23-year-old man at the scene.
He is being held at a south London police station, the Met said.
The car, which is suspected to have been stolen, struck the group at about 14:05 BST on Lennard Road. It had been pursued by police from nearby Birkbeck Road in Beckenham.
One witness, Venissa Vassell, described about 20 people lifting the car to free the girls.
One girl who was taken away by ambulance was screaming, “I can’t feel my legs”, Ms Vassell said.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is investigating.
Over the past 10 years, 252 members of the public have died following road traffic incidents involving the police in England and Wales, according to the IPCC.
In London there were 498 crashes involving a pursuit by Met officers in 2015-16.
