On 27 May a police driver ‘lost control’ and crashed on Billet Road. Just over 3 weeks later an elderly pedestrian was run down and killed by a police driver on The Ridgeway, Chingford. Yesterday, another police driver was involved in a crash and careered off on to the pavement

A WOMAN has been hospitalised after her car was involved in an accident with an unmarked police car.

The crash happened at the junction between Sewardstone Road and Kings Head Hill, Chingford.
Officers believe the police car was responding to an emergency call and had its lights and sirens on. The woman, believed to be 50-years-old, suffered head injuries as a result of the accident.

The police car veered off the road onto the pavement while a damaged black Ford KA sports car was left in the middle of the road.
