Police have arrested a 20-year-old man at Heathrow Airport “who was trying to flee Britain” on suspicion of attempted murder after four men were hit by a car in west London.
Met Police responded on Taunton Avenue in Hounslow around 2.43am Sunday after receiving reports that a car collided with four pedestrians.
Officials said the driver of the car did not stop at the scene.
The four men, all in their early 20s, were taken to hospital, where two are in critical condition.
The other two sustained injuries that were deemed life-changing.
