Back injury received from Wimbledon crash

A 35-year-old man in the Wimbledon area of south west London suffered back injury in a car crash at the junction of Kingston Road and Wilton Crescent.

Reasons behind the road traffic accident have not yet been reported, but a crew manager at Wimbledon Fire Station explained that the car collided with an HGV vehicle used by the council to paint white lines on the road-sides.

Subsequently, the driver veered off the road and crashed into the low wall of a resident's driveway.

Police had to close Kingston Road, a main route for motorists between Raynes Park and South Wimbledon for almost an hour, during which there was great disruption to traffic.

If the driver of the HGV was injured and the other driver found liable, then the council-employed worker could claim compensation. However, if in fact the HGV driver is found at fault, then the 35-year-old victim might claim for personal injury caused during the car crash.

The car driver was taken to St George's Hospital suffering from back injury as well as face, knee, and hand injuries.
