The collision occurred when a Nissan Micra, which was being driven by a woman learner during a lesson, was hit from behind by a Waltham Forest dustbin lorry at around 10:45 on Monday (October 18).
The crash happened on Woodford New Road in Walthamstow, near the junction with Forest Road.
The crash site is adjacent to the new Forest Road ‘improvement’ scheme which has just raised the speed limit from 30 mph to 40 mph.
Yesterday I came across the aftermath of yet another crash on Forest Road at the junction with Hoe Street. Broken glass all over the road and the cycle lane and some tangled metal, evidently someone hitting the vehicle in front.
