East London and West Essex Guardian Series: The scene of the crash at lunchtime The scene of the crash at lunchtime

A POLICE officer had to be cut from a patrol car after a crash near a busy junction.

The Vauxhall Astra, which was answering an emergency call and contained two officers, was in collision with a BMW driven by a man carrying a female passenger at around 11.20am today (Friday).

The accident happened on Wood Street, Walthamstow, close to the junction with Forest Road.

Those involved have been taken to Whipps Cross University Hospital, but their injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

The crash comes just two days after another car crashed in Lea Bridge Road after being chased by a police vehicle.

A police spokeswoman refused to say whether the police car in today's accident was chasing the BMW, or on another emergency call.

The accident caused traffic disruption in the area.

The usual crowd of gawping morons gathered around the scene. Don't they have anything better to do?
