Woman and three dogs killed in Chelsea car crash

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

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

Officers were called to Cheyne Walk in Chelsea at 6.21am on Saturday to report a collision involving a pedestrian, animals and an Audi.

The woman was found dead at the scene, while the three dogs also died from injuries, police said.

The driver was slightly injured.

A crime scene cordon is in place on Cheyne Walk, a road lined with mansions that stretches alongside the River Thames.

A photo on the London 999 Twitter account shows the junction where Albert Bridge meets the cordoned off Chelsea embankment and a blue forensic tent pitched in the debris-strewn road.

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

A section of the embankment between Battersea Bridge and Royal Hospital Road and Albert Bridge is closed, according to the Transport for London Traffic website.

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