UPDATE: 90-year-old driver in Redbridge Roundabout crash was ‘stable’ when taken to hospital
The 90-year-old driver who was injured when his car crashed into the back of a coach at the Redbridge Roundabout yesterday was “stable” when he was taken to hospital.
The man was taken to Whipps Cross Hospital in an ambulance shortly after 11am.
He had to be cut out of his car by firefighters after the front bonnet was crushed on impact.
Watch manager Alan Furlong was at the scene with the crew from Hainault fire station.
He said: “The man was conscious and breathing when he was taken to hospital.
You may also want to watch:
“He had a whiplash injury and I think he was suffering from chest pain.
“When someone is quite elderly it does put us on tenterhooks because old people often don’t deal with injuries from a crash as well as young people can.”
