Miraculously, no one was seriously injured after a car crashed into the front of a block of flats in Romford town centre this afternoon.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed they were called to Dolphin Approach at 2.18pm to reports of a car smashing into the front of a house.
He said: “The London Ambulance Service (LAS) and London Fire Brigade were also called and attended the scene.
“A man in his 70s was treated for his injuries.”
An eyewitness told the Recorder “a silver car had crashed through the small front garden of some flats – at least half of the car was inside the building”.
The LAS confirmed two people sustained minor injuries in the accident.
A spokeswoman said: “We were called at 2.22pm to reports of a road traffic collision on Dolphin Approach.
“We sent an ambulance crew and an incident response officer to the scene, with the first of our medics arriving in under seven minutes.
“We checked over two patients at the scene – one man and one woman – but did not take anyone to hospital.”
