Firefighters have said it was a miracle no one died after a car hit a flower delivery lorry while a worker was unloading the vehicle.
The car hit the stationary long goods vehicle on Finchley Road, Golders Green, in the early hours of this morning.
A man trapped in the car’s passenger seat was taken to hospital after fire crews from West Hampstead and Euston used cutting equipment to free him from the vehicle.
The delivery driver, car driver and a second passenger were treated for minor injuries.
Watch manager Adam Barnett said: “It was extremely lucky we weren’t dealing with more serious injuries and potentially fatalities.

It took crews 50 minutes to deal with the crash after being called to the scene at 1.17am.
