60,000 vehicle damaged as two cars collide in London

Two cars collided in London as community police officers learned how to direct the traffic.

The car accident occurred at the junction of Buckingham Palace Road and involved two vehicles, one of which was a Jaguar XK8, believed to cost in the region of 60,000.

Warning signs had been erected in the area while community police officers were given lessons on directing busy traffic.

One witness commented on the traffic accident and said, "There was mayhem, with one car wrecked and the other badly damaged in the middle of the road. There was steam and debris everywhere, but traffic kept on coming because the lights were out.

"The officer in charge was holding his head in his hands. The trainees were running around like headless chicken. One looked like he wished the ground would swallow him up."

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said, "We will, of course, do everything possible to minimise the risk of this happening again. However, it is very important that traffic police community support officers are given adequate training."

Nobody was seriously injured in the crash but motorists may have suffered car accident injuries including whiplash. If they did suffer neck injuries, they may contact a personal injury solicitor to pursue making car accident compensation claims.
