A crash on a narrow road in Hackney has written off a bus and car with no injuries reported this evening.
The head on collision occurred at 5.15pm on rainy night on Leaside Road in Hackney, when a blue rover swerved to avoid the on coming bus on the slippery road.
Bus passengers were “shaken” and were forced to use the emergency doors to escape the vehicle.
Eyewitnesses noted the narrow road and how a white van legally parked on the left hand side of the road created a dangerous bottleneck.
The driver of the rover and bus driver were unavailable for comment.
The accident is expected to take an hour to clear before normal traffic can be resumed.
