London’s hidden violence

A vehicle has evidently hit this advertising panel on Hoe Street (by Walthamstow station) with tremendous force, demolishing it and scattering broken glass across the road and adjacent cycle lane. Presumably a lorry or a very fast moving car, whose driver ‘lost control’. Nothing in the local paper, so perhaps no one was injured, in which case this crash will not be registered in the annual list of road traffic casualties which are (mis)used to determine the supposed safety of British roads.
