A South East Coast Ambulance service spokesperson said: “Ambulance crews attended the scene following reports of a two vehicle collision.

  1. And a very greasy road surface wouldn’t have helped in stopping ether car especially if police car was at speed coming up to traffic lights, the good thing is nobody was seriously injured.

  2. This happened just as the police at another incident (unreported) was finishing in Northdown Road at the zebra crossing on the junction of Athelstan Road. Something went on there to cause Northdown Road to be closed in both directions around 6.30 – 8.00pm on Wednesday causing buses to have to reverse back to take another route past. Two ambulances and many police officers involved.
