This is the terrifying moment a car ploughed into an elderly man, with another seen clinging to the windscreen in Golders Green this morning.
CCTV images captured the out-of-control car driving into a pharmacy opposite Kosher Kingdom, at around 11.46am.
Moments later, dozens of stunned witnesses raced towards the scene to lend their help to the injured.
Scotland Yard confirmed that one man has been taken to a central London hospital with life-threatening injuries and was treating the incident as a ‘road traffic collision’. No arrests have been made.
Blogger David Collier took on Twitter to describe the incident, tweeting the “car [has] driven into shop at Golders Green. People hurt. Pesach shoppers opposite Kosher Kingdom. No idea yet if accident or not”.
He added: “Tragic. People holding shop front up . Certainly serious injury. People just out for Pesach shopping. Heartbreaking.”
CST said it “has discussed with police and can confirm that traffic incident in Golders Green Road appears to be an accident.”
Shomrim North West London posted a picture on Twitter, showing a London air ambulance had landed in nearby Princes Park.
Henry Jacobs, who witnessed the event, said: “I was in Kosher Kingdom and we were told there was an emergency and had to get out. Kosher Kingdom was cordoned off. I had just come from The Mehadrin butcher and the car went into the shop two doors away.”
