Man dies 'in fall from car' in Ealing, west London

A man has died after apparently falling from a moving car in west London.

The 23-year-old was taken to hospital at 0020 BST on Friday with head injuries sustained on the eastbound A40 near to the junction with Hanger Lane in Ealing.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said he died six hours later. A post-mortem examination is due to be held shortly.

The man's next of kin have been notified but formal identification is yet to take place.

The Met spokesman said: "Inquiries are under way to establish the full circumstances but at this early stage it is believed that the man fell from a moving car travelling along the A40.

"The car did not stop."
