A man is fighting for his life after being hit by a car at a dangerous junction this morning.
Police and medics were called to reports of a collision between a car and a pedestrian in Stamford Hill, at the junction with Clapton Common, just before 6.15am.
A man, believed to be in his 40s, was taken to hospital with life threatening injuries.
Police initially said the driver did not stop, but it has now emerged they did and they are now assisting police with inquiries.
The crash comes just four days after a man was killed at the same junction. The 41-year-old pedestrian was hit by a bus on Friday night.
Lib Dem councillor Abraham Jacobson said there had been four serious accidents in the area in four days, tweeting that motorcyclists and cyclists were “dicing with death daily.”
