Four cars collided leaving one pensioner needing to be cut out of his car complaining of neck pain and three others treated for injuries.
The 65-year-old man was treated as a priority after complaining of neck and back pain. Firefighters used the jaws of life to free him from his car and avoid further injury before he was taken to Queen’s Hospital, Romford.
Three females, who were also involed in the collision at around 7.15pm last Tuesday (April 30) along Eastern Avenue, Dagenham, were travelling in the same car.
All three were aged 23 and taken to Queen’s Hospital. Two treated for back pain and one was complaining of a headache.
Watch manager Terry Maher said: “The two vehicles had shunted into each other with the man’s vehicle quite severely damaged.”
Four ambulance crews were called to the scene with emergency services eventually leaving after about an hour.
The condition of those injured in the crash is unknown at this stage.
