A 78-YEAR-OLD man was killed in a crash on an A40 slip road in Hillingdon.

The man’s next of kin have been informed.
Police say he was local but he is yet to be formally identified and a postmortem examination was due to take place today (Wednesday).
The man was on foot when he was involved in the collision with a white Renault Kangoo.

London Ambulance Service was called to the road at around 11.30am, and it alerted the police and the London Air Ambulance crew, who provided medical assistance but were unable to save the man, who died at the scene.
A London Air Ambulance spokesman said: “We were called to reports of a road traffic collision involving a pedestrian and a car near Hillingdon Circus.
“Sadly, despite extensive efforts to resuscitate the patient, a man was pronounced dead at the scene by the doctor from London’s Air Ambulance.”
