Yet another car crash today, this time in Vaughan Way, Wapping E1W. The precise circumstances are unknown but
a resident kindly provided us with the information below based on what they saw. at the bottom of the page you will see a Storify timeline of tweets from local residents to fill in some of the gaps.
Many thanks to @BuckleyTech for his photos, especially of the prelude to the crash at Hermitage.
“We have just had another crash (12:15). A police car chasing a car along Thomas Moore Street. I can’t go outside but it looks like a silver BMW. I heard a siren, screech and crash. It want past my place (Stockholm Way), past the junction of Vaughan Road and has crashed into a park car. Thankfully, it does not appear that anybody else is injured.”
Which sums it all up pretty succinctly. We sent our camera team along (with their tea) to take some photos.
As well all know one day we will not be able to write ‘fortunately nobody was injured’.
Anyone walking on the pavement at the same time that this car crashed would have been wiped out.
Here is the story in tweets from Wapping residents.
