Car crash opposite Alexandra Palace

An ambulance was called after a navy car careered into an Alexandra Palace bus stop.

Police arrived to a scene of smashed glass, with the windshield of a Volkswagen shattered.

The car appeared to have driven directly into the wall of the bus stop, which collapsed inwards.

The car driver and a passenger were treated for injuries, opposite the Alexandra Palace main entrance, in the early hours of Sunday, January 10.

Walkers and visitors to Alexander Palace and the farmers market on Sunday were met with the dramatic scene, taped off by police.

The accident was discovered on the morning of a major world snooker tournament, the Dafabet Masters, at Alexandra Palace.

There were no arrests, and the cause of the crash has not been disclosed.
