A man who was fighting for his life in hospital after a car crash in a busy street is on the road to recovery.

Three people were taken to hospital following the major crash in Camden Road last Thursday (July 6) at 6.20pm.

The road was shut off both ways near Camden Road station, between Royal College Street and Camden Street.

Metropolitan Police says that a car crashed into street furniture and two cars.

Among the people injured was a man in his 40s, who was in hospital in a critical condition last week.

However in a new update shared today (July 13) by the Met, it has been revealed that the man’s condition is now stable.

The two other people taken to hospital did not have life-threatening injuries.

According to the London Ambulance Service a fourth patient was treated at the scene, but they did not require hospital assistance.

One eyewitness said on Twitter: “Scary stuff as I’d passed the Costa Coffee 30 sec(s) before I heard the loud screech and crash behind me.

“Such a busy area as there were tonnes of people assisting already.”

While a cordon was in place, bus routes including the 29, 253 and 274 were diverted from the area.

There have been no arrests at this time, the Met said.
