Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses to a fatal crash in Durnsford Road, Wimbledon early on Tuesday morning (January 21).
Officers have confirmed the man killed in the collision, which is still not being treated as suspicious, is believed to be 49 years old and that his next of kin may now have been traced.
Formal identification has yet to take place though and a post-mortem examination is scheduled on Monday (January 27).
Detective Sergeant Andy Russell, from the Met’s South West Area Roads & Transport Policing team, said: “We have now traced who we believe to be the man’s next of kin and formal identification will take place in due course.
“We are not looking for anyone else in connection with this tragic event at this time, however we would still like to hear from anyone who may have information about the incident.”
Officers have also now traced the driver of a blue curtained Volvo articulated lorry who they wished to speak to as part of enquiries and they are assisting police.
Anyone with information that may assist police should call police via 101, quoting reference CAD 1025/21Jan.
