A young girl who died after a car crashed into a school fence in Wimbledon earlier this week has been named.
The family of eight-year-old Selena Lau released a short statement paying tribute to her on Friday evening.
It said: “Selena was an intelligent and cheeky girl adored and loved by everyone.
“The family wishes their privacy to be respected at this sad time.”
She died after a Land Rover crashed through a girls’ prep school building in London on Thursday,
Sixteen people were treated for injuries following the collision, including children and adults.
Metropolitan Police confirmed on Friday afternoon that another eight-year-old girl with life-threatening injuries and a woman in her 40s in a critical condition are both in hospital.
Also among the injured in hospital is a seven-month-old baby girl whose condition has been assessed as not life-threatening.
A 46-year-old woman from Wimbledon was arrested on suspicion of causing Ms Lau’s death, and has since been released on bail.
A Met Police statement said: “Detectives from the Met’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit are leading the investigation and their inquiries are ongoing. They are expected to remain at the scene throughout the day.
“The investigation remains in its early stages and officers are keeping an open mind whilst following up all lines of inquiry.
“We ask that people do not speculate about the circumstances while this work is ongoing.”
