A post mortem help on December 3 at St Pancras Mortuary gave cause of death as a traumatic neck injury, and an inquest was opened and adjourned at St Pancras Coroner’s court on Wednesday.
The vehicle that did not stop is described as a green people carrier.
Officers from the Road Death Investigation Unit at Northolt are leading the inquiry.
Detective Sergeant Chris Osborne of the unit said: “We are continuing to study a vast amount of CCTV but it is clear it was a very busy time and there were a lot of people in the area at the time.
“We would urge those people to come forward with information no matter how trivial it is.”
