Park Lane crash sees London minicab squashed between police car and lamppost

Traffic along London's iconic Park Lane came to a standstill today (29 February) after a major collision between a Metropolitan Police vehicle and a London licensed private hire vehicle.

Footage and images of the aftermath have been shared amongst social media users showing the white Toyota Prius crushed between the police car and a lamppost.

Details of what actually happened are yet to surface, but some Twitter users have aired their opinions on what may of happened, with one writing: "Uber wrong way on Park Lane and crashed into a police car. How is that even possible?"

Another wrote: "Actually looks like the PHV was going across Park Lane and was side swiped by the Police Car. As far as who had the green light or red light I don't know."

Who was at fault and the details leading up to the collision are general speculation at the moment, and it's not yet known which operator the private hire driver works with and if indeed there were passengers on board.

There are no current reports of injury.

Metropolitan Police have been approached for comment.
