The 25-year-old driver of the car sustained back injuries. His passengers, a 25-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman, have minor injuries.

Detectives from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit based at Chadwell Heath are investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the witness appeal line on 020 8597 4874.

There have been no arrests and inquiries continue.
