THIS was the scene in Camden Town in the early hours yesterday (Wednesday) after a car flipped onto its roof and smashed into the side of a supermarket building, writes Dan Carrier.

Despite the damage at the junction of Camden Road and Camden Street – just outside the British Transport Police’s headquarters – nobody was killed and a man taken to hospital was not said to have life-threatening injuries.

Police said one man had been arrested on suspicion of driving offences.

Fire crews were at the scene just before midnight and used specialist cutting gear to help free a man from inside the four-door hatchback.

A police spokesman added both roads were reopened at 5.30am yesterday (Wednesday), and it is believed no other vehicles were involved.

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We sent an ambulance crew, an incident response officer and a medic in a car to the scene. We treated a person for head injuries and took them to hospital.”
