Four people were wounded on Tuesday night after an undercover police car crashed outside a north London restaurant.
The eatery involved in this incident is Pizza East in Highgate Road in Kentish Town, and the silver Vauxhall Astra was apparently responding to an emergency call when it smashed into customers sitting outside the pizzeria.
According to the Met Police report, the crash happened after the vehicle was in collision with another car at the Sanderson Close intersection with Highgate Road.
The pizza restaurant was quite packed at 7.45pm when the unmarked police car smashed into a bollard near it.
The victims, two diners and two police officers, were treated for their injuries at the scene by paramedics and only one of them, who had suffered head trauma, was rushed to hospital. Both civil victims suffered non-life threatening injuries and are now in stable condition, while the police officers had whiplash injuries.
A police spokesperson confirmed this in a short statement saying, “A man, believed to be in his thirties, is in a non-life threatening condition. A woman, also believed to be in her thirties, is being treated for minor injuries.”
As of now, no arrests have been made in this case.
