Two pedestrians were hit by a car in Petersfield Avenue, at the junction with St Neots Road, shortly after midnight on Saturday, 11 July.
Mark Joseph Henry, 58, from Romford, was pronounced dead at the scene despite the efforts of paramedics.
Paramedics rushed the second victim, aged 58, to hospital where his injuries were established as not life-threatening.
The 36-year-old driver did not stop at the scene but was later arrested by police on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
He has since been released under investigation.
“Mark will be greatly missed and was much loved by his sister, two brothers and his extended family and was taken too soon in this road traffic collision,” said a spokesperson speaking on behalf of Mr Henry’s family.
Detectives from the Roads and Transport Policing Command are investigating and are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or who saw the car leaving the scene.
Officers are also asking that anyone who was driving in the area, and who has a dash cam, check their footage for anything that might help the investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Serious Collison Investigation Unit on 020 8597 4874 or via 101 quoting reference Cad 105/11Jul.Tags: Havering, Harold Hill
