Among those who tweeted about the crash was London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who expressed his deep sorrow and extended his condolences to Selena’s family and friends.


People were sharing their personal speculations about the circumstances surrounding the crash, drawing insights from aerial views of the scene. A Twitter user expressed a theory, suggesting that the incident appeared deliberate due to the challenging manoeuvre required to enter the area. They also pointed out the absence of skid marks and any indications of braking on the grass.

Twitter users also voiced their frustration regarding the handling of the incident by the police. They expressed concerns that due to the woman responsible for the incident being wealthy and having influential connections, her identity would not be publicized in the tabloids as it would have been for an ordinary person.


The woman, who was 40 years old and responsible for the crash, receiving bail under these circumstances shocked people. They questioned why she couldn’t be charged, denied bail, and then have the defence lawyers make any necessary applications.


There was also frustration among individuals regarding the way certain news outlets reported the crash, emphasizing that it was not merely a car but a person driving it who crashed into the school, resulting in the tragic loss of a child’s life.
