Speaking to the Evening Standard, Zeba Begun, whose house overlooks the scene where the woman died said:
"She then looked to her left and then to her right and I had no idea what she was going to do, I thought maybe she was joking about, but then about 30 seconds later I heard some beeps from the oncoming traffic which could see her.
"And she just waved at the traffic and then fell down onto the road. As soon as I saw it I called the ambulance and police."
