A woman who died following a suspected dispute with another driver has been named locally as 33-year-old Christie McHugh.
It's believed she died after being carried along on the bonnet of a car, before falling off and hitting a Belisha becon, outside the Lord Kitchener pub in Barnet.
A message on its Facebook page said: "After yesterdays sad and tragic accident. paul and all the staff send there [sic] deepest condolences to john and the kids and christie's family. and a most sincere thank you to all the friends and customers that helped after the accident."
Ms McHugh's friend Alice Cole said she had asked another woman to move her car.
She told the Daily Mail: "Christie came out to put the kids in the car which was blocked.
"She asked the woman to move the car and the woman got quite verbal. Christie has stood in the way and she has gone into her.
"Christie stood blocking the car park to say, 'Stop, I want to have a word with you about being so rude'. The woman has accelerated and put Christie on the front of the car.
"Then she's accelerated even more. Christie hit the lamppost at a height and then slumped down and the rest is history."
A post mortem examination is scheduled to take place on Mrs McHugh's body later today.
