A man was taken to hospital with a chest injury after a two-vehicle crash in Catford where a car flipped over.

Five firefighters attended the collision in Southend Lane on July 8 after London Fire Brigade (LFB) staff were called at 7.30pm.

Nobody was trapped but London Ambulance Service (LAS) staff treated a man in his 20s for a chest injury. He was taken to King's College Hospital as a priority.

One fire crew from Forest Hill cleared up fuel on the road to make the area safe.

An LFB spokeswoman said: “We were called at 7.30pm. Two cars were in a collision, nobody was trapped. Two people were injured, both were treated by London Ambulance Service.”

There was heavy traffic in the area following the collision.

Was bound to happen one day. Has been a nightmare drive for the past few months at that spot. It could do with a mini roundabout or move the lights to nearer that junction. Also stop cars being parked on that corner stretch of lidls entry, they block viewing of cars trying to exit onto main road.

Oh and Lastly, take away the licences of those that use lidl who a) cant drive and b) certainly cannot park between marked lines. Watching those tyoe trying to drive in and out of the supermarket are a health hazard.
