Five people have been injured after a car mounted a pavement in North London.

It’s thought they were waiting at a bus stop.

The incident happened in Stamford Hill just before 09.30 today (Friday).

Four adults were taken to a major trauma centre, reported the London Ambulance Service.

A fifth person was taken to hospital by a Hatzola (private) ambulance crew.

The bus stop was partially destroyed, and the area covered in shattered glass.

A silver Toyota has severe damage to its bonnet and front tyres.

Eyewitnesses say it had crashed into a tree outside a mini market.

“Five adults were treated at the scene.

“We took four to a major trauma centre, and one person was taken to hospital by an Hatzola ambulance crew.”
