UPDATE: Pregnant woman hurt in Snaresbrook bus collision
A three-month-pregnant woman is among those injured when a bus and a car collided in Snaresbrook.
Paramedics took the 26-year-old woman to Whipps Cross Hospital as a priority with neck pain. The woman driver of the car, 30, was also hurt in the smash at the junction of Snaresbrook Road and Hollybush Hill at about 2.30pm today.
Several passengers of the bus were treated by ambulance staff after they were thrown forward in the incident.
One bystander said: “The car had gone straight into the front of a bus, but it looks like it was on the wrong side of the road. I don’t know if it was being chased by police or not.”
Three ambulances that appeared at the scene have now left, and police are continuing to direct traffic down Eagle Lane. More to follow.
