Death of woman in Barnet

March 6, 2013, 10:57 am

We are appealing for witnesses and information following the death of a
woman in Barnet,

At approx. 18.40hrs on Monday 4 March police were called to East Barnet
Road, Barnet, after a woman suffered head injuries.

The ambulance service attended but she was confirmed dead at the scene.

She is believed to be a woman in her 30s. We await formal
identification. Next of kin are aware.

A post-mortem is due to be held at Finchley Mortuary tomorrow (6 March).

At this early stage it appears she was a driver involved in a dispute
with another woman driver.

She left her vehicle and an incident occurred during which she was
injured. Early inquiries indicate that she was carried on the bonnet of
the other car and fell from the bonnet and was in collision with a
Belisha beacon.

The vehicle drove away.

Police subsequently attended an address in Barnet and arrested a woman
in connection with the inquiry. She was taken to a north west London
police station and was subsequently bailed pending further enquiries to
a date in late April.

A Vauxhall Insignia has been recovered.

Officers from the Homicide and Serous Crime Command are investigating
the circumstances surrounding the death. An incident room has opened up
at Barnes under DCI Howard Groves.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone who has information that
may assist the investigation, to contact the incident room on 020 8247
7821. Alternatively, to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555
111.
