Ms Croke, of Grovebury Road, Abbey Wood, died from her injuries whilst Philbert sped away from the site of the collision.
Metropolitan Police officers, London Ambulance Service paramedics and London's Air Ambulance attended but Ms Croke was pronounced dead at the scene.
A post-mortem examination at Greenwich Mortuary on June 23 gave the cause of death as multiple injuries.
Five days later Philbert, then just 17-years-old, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.A Range Rover, no less. We aren’t told who owned it. It isn’t reported as stolen.
Draw your own conclusions.
Detective Sergeant Richard Budd from the Road and Transport Policing Command paid tribute to the victim's family and the many witnesses who helped secure Philbert's conviction.
He said: "Philbert was unlicensed, untrained and uninsured when he drove a car and killed a pedestrian on a footpath. He was driving at speed and rather than attempt to help the woman he drove into, he fled the scene.
"His callous actions have had a devastating affect (sic) on the victim's family. I can only hope that today's verdict will go some way to helping them move on from this harrowing case."Nothing to see here, just a youth of 17 with no known source of income at the wheel of an expensive & powerful vehicle he wasn’t registered to drive. Move along.
