A four-year-old boy was tragically killed on Sunday after he ran out into the road and was hit by a vehicle as his mum waited at a pelican crossing.
Little Agarwin Sasikaran was at a pelican crossing with his mum when he suddenly ran into the road and was hit by a car at around 7pm on Sunday night in Hayes, west London.
Police, paramedics and the air ambulance were called to Uxbridge Road, Hayes, following the collision.
The family had just been to a nearby KFC as Agarwin had been hungry and were on their way back home when the tragic incident occurred.
Agarwin had just started full-time school last month and would have turned five in December.
A family friend, who did not want to be named, said: "It's so sad, his family are distraught.
"He was going to be five in December. He had just started going to school full-time.
"He was waiting with his mum at the crossing, she pressed the button and was waiting, but he ran out and was hit.
"They had just gone to get KFC because he was hungry and he was just excited to get home."
Tributes, including flowers and a picture of the boy have been fixed to the railings near where he was struck down on the busy main road.
His parents, who live just yards from where their son was killed, are said to be too distraught to speak.
A relative who answered the door said: "It's a very sad time.
"They [Agarwin's parents] don't want to say anything at the moment; we are all so sad, it's such an awful thing to have happened.
He added: "It's a 40mph limit on that road, but so many cars go much too fast, often much faster than the speed limit.
"It really needs to be stopped or more children will also be killed."
Anyone with information that could assist the investigation or dash-cam footage is asked to contact police on 101 or 020 8991 9555.
