The crash scene in Bush Road Leytonstone

First published in News

A BABY escaped a road crash without injury after a car collided with railings and flipped onto its roof.

The 34-year-old female driver of the car was trapped and had to be cut out of the care by a fire rescue team. But the baby had been removed beforehand by an ambulance crew and was given the all-clear.

The crash happened in Bush Road, Leytonstone, just after 9.30am this morning.

Emergency services were called to reports that a car had collided with some street furniture.

The woman had a hand injury and was taken as a priority by London Ambulance to Royal London Hospital, but her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The scene of the crash has now been cleared.

It was a different story earlier and their was no mention of railings just furniture. There is so much dumped these days I thought it was an old sideboard or something.

It still says a car collided with street furniture. Which does indeed mean railings, lamp posts, bollards, etc.

Perhaps if you weren't in such a hurry to get the first post on every story, and instead considered whether your words were worth hearing, you'd make more sense!

Read the Oxford English Dictionary please. Look up Street and then Furniture. I do not talk in jargon.
