Man who died in fail-to-stop collision in Harrow named by police

Police have renewed an appeal for witnesses following a fatal collision in Harrow.

Specialist collision investigators from Met Police have named a man killed in a fail-to-stop collision in Harrow. Ping Leung Cheng, 61, who was known as ‘Colin’, sadly died shortly before 01:00hrs on Sunday, 7 August.

Police have confirmed that following the incident in Harrow, Colin’s family were notified and they continue to be supported by specially trained officers.

Detective Sergeant Rebecca Collens, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Mr Cheng’s family deserve to know what led to his death and, if there was criminal wrongdoing, that should be punished appropriately.

“His family have suffered a terrible loss made all the worse by the many unanswered questions. We are doing all we can to give them the answers they deserve but we also need help from the public.

“Colin’s injuries are consistent with a collision having taken place.

“I would appeal to anyone who walked or drove along this stretch of road late on Sunday, 7 August, particularly around midnight, to reflect on their journey, to check any dash cam footage and to come forward if they have any information that could help us.”

Anyone with information can call 020 8246 9820 or contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
