Woman, 41, and three dogs die in car crash on Chelsea street

A 41-year-old woman and three dogs have been killed in a car crash in west London, the Metropolitan Police said.

The driver of the car – a 26-year-old man – has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and taken into custody.

Officers were called to Cheyne Walk in Chelsea just before 6.30am on Saturday to reports of a collision involving a pedestrian, animals and an Audi.

The woman was found dead at the scene, while all three dogs also died as a result of injuries, according to police.

The driver was found with minor injuries.

A forensic tent has been pitched on Cheyne Walk, a mansion-lined road that stretches along the Thames and has long drawn famous residents such as rock star Sir Mick Jagger.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area due to road closures.

The woman’s next of kin have been informed, police said.

They are appealing for witnesses or anyone with dash cam footage to call 101 quoting CAD 1500/14May.
