Shocking moment white van driver ‘deliberately’ reverses into woman in hijab in ‘racist’ hit and run

THIS is the shocking moment a white van driver “deliberately” reverses into a woman in a hijab in a “racist” hit and run.

The pedestrian was hit by the van in Ilford, East London, at around 9.15am on Tuesday.

Footage shows the Ford Transit van approaching a T-junction as a woman wearing a hijab walks along the footpath.

The woman then crosses the road behind the van.

Suddenly, the van driver reverses into the woman and knocks her to the ground.

The driver then speeds off away from the scene.

Video of the incident was shared to Twitter today, amid claims the attack was “racially-motivated”.

The person sharing the footage wrote: “Two days ago my friend’s sister was the victim of a racially-motivated hit and run.

“His sister was wearing a hijab and recalls receiving a dirty look from the driver before this happened. The police have been informed but have not done much to help find out who he is.

“It’s disgusting to see that still today all it takes is to be of a different religion or race to be the victim of this sort of attack.”

The woman was reportedly left with “multiple” injuries and has been left traumatised and distressed.

In a statement, the Met Police said: “Police were called at 09:39hrs on Tuesday, 29 September to reports of a collision involving a van and a pedestrian in Betchworth Road, Ilford.

“Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and spoke to a woman in her twenties. No injuries were reported.

“The van involved in the collision didn’t stop at the scene and enquiries to locate the driver are ongoing.

“No arrests have been made.”
