TWO pedestrians were mown down when a car ploughed through protective roadside railings in Golders Green today.

Shortly before 2pm the grey Toyota Corolla mounted the pavement in Finchley Road outside the Kim Chee restaurant.

A police spokesman confirmed that a 21-year-old woman believed to be the driver suffered a suspected broken arm in the collision, while a man, 23, suffered a dislocated shoulder. Both were taken to hospital.

The cause of the accident is being inestigated by police but the Ham&High understands officers are looking into the possibility of a mechanical failure of the car. No arrests have been made in relation to the incident.

Miles Perring, manager of Snappy Snaps, which is opposite the site of the incident, said: "I heard the noise and I honestly thought some scaffolding had fallen down. There was a guy wailing a lot and there was one woman on the ground."

Traffic was disrupted with the northbound section of Finchley Road to the south of Golders Green remaining closed until just before 3.30pm.
