Murder probe after van man run over
A murder investigation has been launched after a delivery driver was run over by his own van.
Charles Bunyasi, 47, was making a delivery to a house in Coulsdon, south London, when his vehicle was stolen. He suffered fatal injuries when he was then struck by the van, Scotland Yard believes.
Mr Bunyasi, from Mitcham, was taken to hospital after the incident at 11am on Saturday. He was pronounced dead at 5.45pm the same day.
A 28-year-old man has been arrested and is in custody at a south London police station.
Detective Chief Inspector Cliff Lyons said: "Mr Bunyasi was a hard working man who was in the process of making a delivery to help support his family. It is a tragedy that he has lost his life in this manner."
Police recovered the stolen van on Sunday, after finding it in Putney. A post-mortem examination on the body of Mr Bunyasi, whose next of kin have been informed of his death, is due to be held on Monday.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 020 8721 4961 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
