Garden wall collides with electric car

This was the horrific scene when an electric car fell apart in a crash that killed the driver.

The 47-year-old woman was thrown clear of the Reva G-Wiz when it hit a garden wall in Hendon last night at about 6.45pm.

No other vehicles were involved in the collision at the junction of The Vale and Hendon Way which left the vehicle in two pieces. Adjoining roads were closed for several hours.

The tiny Indian-made car has been seen in increasing numbers on the roads of the capital
because it is exempt from the congestion charge and parking fees and has been adopted by celebrities including Jonathan Ross and Kristin Scott Thomas.
