Ilford man in hospital with serious multiple injuries after crash on M11

An Ilford man is in a serious condition in hospital after suffering multiple injuries in a car crash on the M11.

The silver Peugeot 206 he was driving came into collision with a blue Vauxhall Vectra on the M11 near Epping, close to the M25 interchange, at just before 5pm yesterday.

The injured man, who Essex Police say is in his 20s, was taken by air ambulance to Whipps Cross Hospital, Leytonstone, and later transferred to the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel where he is being treated for his injuries.

The southbound carriageway was closed for about two hours while initial investigations were carried out.

The driver of the Vectra, a 30-year-old man from north London, was arrested on suspicion of causing injury by dangerous driving and was later bailed pending further inquiries.
