TRIBUTES have been paid to a woman who died when a Range Rover flew off the A40 and smashed into a Tesla before plunging on to train tracks.
The “mum”, in her 20s, died while three others were injured in the horror crash at Park Royal station in West London.
According to locals, the woman has a six-year-old daughter.
Katee Moore, 30, who lives in Baronet House adjacent to the crash site witnessed the aftermath of the smash.
She said: “About 2am I was woken up by the noise of cars going on for about an hour-and-a-half. There was a Range Rover parked up watching their friend in a BMW spinning around the roundabout.
“Later on we heard this horrendous bang and then all of a sudden police were there. A lot of us went to put flowers down as apparently she’s a young mother with a six-year-old child.”
It comes after a terrified Uber driver revealed the moment he nearly died in the smash.
Nawaf Ali, 40, had just parked his own Tesla when a black Range Rover smashed through carpark railings off the A40 at 120mph yesterday.
The 4×4 hit another Tesla parked inches away from Nawaf’s – before speeding behind the parking area and onto railway tracks at Park Royal station in West London.
Witness Nawaf last night relived the terrifying crash which he dubbed “something out of a horror movie”.
The dad debated parking next to the Tesla that was hit – but ultimately ended up parking a few spots away in a move that likely saved his life.
Nawaf told MailOnline: “I could have died last night, and my kids would not have a father.”
The Tesla driver – whose car is believed to have been charging at the time – was rushed to hospital after being injured.
From the Range Rover the male driver is in critical condition, while another other female passenger is being treated for non life-threatening injuries, it is understood.
Nawaf added: “If I had been standing a few feet away then I would have been hit. I am still shaking thinking about it.”
He said the woman who died was “ejected” from the vehicle. He called for an ambulance and was asked to check if she was breathing.
He said: “I still can’t get the picture of her out of my mind and am till shaking now.
“There was a lot of debris all over the place. I was walking around, then I saw the body of the young woman. It was awful.
“I did not see her at first and wasn’t sure it was a body. It was only when I got closer that I could make her out.
‘When I saw that I just ran back to my car. It was too much. I could not stand to look at it.
“It was like a horror movie, but only much worse. I do not want to see anything like that ever again.”

A terrifying clip shows the moment the car smashed through the barrier of the A40 at 3.48am yesterday morning.
And shocking pictures show the aftermath – with the Range Rover mangled on the tracks.
A police source said: “The Tesla was stationary.
“The other car crashed into the Tesla garage and flipped into the station, landing on the tracks.”
Meanwhile witnesses of the aftermath have told of their shock.
Andrew Wood, who lives in a block of flats next to the station, said: “It woke me up.
“I heard this huge bash at about half past three. I thought it was somebody breaking into one of the garages.
“The car must have smashed the fence, because behind that is the pedestrian walkway and it’s come right over that.
“Ten minutes after there were helicopters, it was like the Third World War.”
Nada Alobaidi, 31, who also lives in the block of flats next to the station, said: “I heard a big crash. I came outside and saw a lot of police and an ambulance as well.
