A fundraising page has been set up to cover the funeral costs of a teenager who died after his car crashed into a central reservation.
Officers from the Metropolitan police and the London Ambulance Service were called shortly after 10pm to the road, but the young man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Now, a GoFundMe page has been set up to cover the costs of the 18-year-old's funeral.
More than £3,000 has been raised so far by well-wishers, which is half of the £5,000 target.
The page description said: "As you all know Tyler Roye passed away at 10pm Sunday, July 7, to a fatal car accident.
"We are tying to raise money to help with all the expenses his family are going to have."
People making donations continued to pay tribute to the youngster.
One anonymous person commented: "You touched the heart of so many, so sad to lose someone at such a young age with their whole life ahead. Rest easy up there."
Another added: "Tyler you will be so so missed. You touched so many hearts and so many people loved you. Take care up there."
Police are still looking for any witnesses who saw the incident, or anyone with dashcam footage.
Detective Sergeant Jose Qureshi, from the serious collision investigation unit, said: “I am appealing for anyone who was in the area of Thames Road and who either saw the moments leading up to the collision, or the collision itself, to come forward.
“A young man has lost his life and we are working hard to piece together what happened.”
Anyone with information or who has footage of the collision on dash-cam is asked to contact 0208 2851574.
