A woman in her 30s has been taken to hospital after being hit by a sports car when it careered off a “dangerous” road in Chadwell Heath.
The pedestrian was “clipped by the wing mirror” of a Porsche Carrera as she walked along Chadwell Heath Lane, before it ploughed into a wall shortly before 10am today.
Before hitting the woman the car had come into collision with the side of an empty school bus which had been pulling out of Charles Road.
The driver of the bus, who did not want to be named, said the car had “appeared from nowhere.”
The London Ambulance Service took the patient to the Royal London Hospital as a priority, after sustaining injuries to her leg and shoulder.
