Teen dies in van crash while riding an e-scooter in London | London

A 14-year-old girl has died in a van accident while riding an e-scooter in East London.

The teen died at the scene from her injuries, city police said. London ambulance crews had tried to treat her after the collision in Green Street, Newham.

Officers were called to reports of the crash at about 1:35 p.m. Monday and the Met has since launched an investigation. A spokesman said: “The Met is investigating the incident and the driver of the van is with the police, but he has not been arrested.”

There were road closures around the scene all Monday afternoon. The Met is calling on all witnesses to the crash or anyone else with information to contact them at 101.

Earlier this year, a 74-year-old man died after his e-scooter collided with two parked cars, while in July 2021 a three-year-old girl suffered ‘life-changing’ injuries after being hit by an e-scooter.
