Crash on Forest Road
A POLICE officer had to be cut from a patrol car after a crash near a busy junction. The Vauxhall Astra, which was answering an emergency call and contained two officers, was in collision with a BMW driven by a man carrying a female passenger at around 11.20am today (Friday). The accident happened on Wood Street, Walthamstow, close to the junction with Forest Road.
The crash comes just two days after another car crashed in Lea Bridge Road after being chased by a police vehicle.
Footnote. The local paper has got it wrong. The photograph shows that the crash happened on Forest Road, not Wood Street. This means there has now been a major smash at three successive junctions on Forest Road in recent months.
