Road traffic accident critically injures 60-year-old
A three-car road traffic accident on the outskirts of London on Romford Road (A113), has resulted in two drivers being injured, one critically.
The third serious incident to have occurred on this highway in four days, the road was appropriately named the most dangerous road in the whole of the east of England by the Road Safety Foundation in 2010.
The car crash occurred on the stretch of the A113 near Ongar.
One driver escaped the accident without suffering personal injury. A woman driver involved had minor injuries and was taken to Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow by ambulance.
The third driver, a 60-year-old man, had to be airlifted due to his critical condition. He suffered severe personal injury to his chest and pelvis and was taken to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel for treatment.
The road was closed for many hours while police investigated the road traffic accident site and debris was cleared from the tarmac.
Chigwell Road Policing Unit is asking any witnesses of the collision to come forward with information, so that it can better determine the events leading up to the incident and establish who is liable. Victims may then be able to make compensation claims.
