A black car was left ruined after the crash on June 1 around 10.30pm in Muswell Hill, with police and paramedics attending the scene.

There has been a series of road safety problems during lockdown around Ally Pally, which recently closed Alexandra Palace Way from 8pm to 5am – a daily temporary measure – in an attempt to combat the issue.

This most recent collision at the bottom of the very same road happened the night before the closure came into effect on June 2. No arrests were made.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “Police were called at 2240hrs on 1 June to a collision in Alexandra Palace Way, N8.

One witness said there was a "really loud bang" before a crowd gathered at the scene. Picture: Flash
