London Road Enfield crash: Nine injured after bus and Smart car crash

Six bus passengers and a motorist have been taken to hospital after a double-decker and a car crashed in north London.
Four ambulances were sent to London Road, Enfield, after the crash at about 7.35am, which was declared a “significant incident” by the LAS.
One woman was badly hurt with chest injuries and was rushed to hospital as a priority.
She was thought to be the driver of the small Smart car driver involved in the crash.

Photos from the scene showed the mangled car next to its wrecked doors lying detached on the tarmac.
Six passengers, including a man with neck pain and five others with less serious injuries, were also taken to hospital.
A further two passengers were treated at the scene for minor cuts and bruises.

Firefighters and police also attended the scene and roads remained closed at 11am as they worked to clear the scene.
A spokesman for the Met said no arrests had been made.
