Children injured in Woodford Green crash involving lorry and car

Two children were injured when a lorry and a car crashed this morning in Woodford Green.

The girls, aged 10 and 12, were taken to hospital with minor injuries with a 34-year-old woman after the accident in Woodford New Road.

Paramedics were called at 7.40am and part of the road was closed, causing traffic jams near the junction with Empress Avenue.

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said two ambulances took the patients to Whipps Cross Hospital in Leytonstone.

She added: “The lorry driver was checked over at the scene and did not need hospital treatment.”
