A four-year-old girl has suffered a potential life-changing head injury following a crash.

Metropolitan Police says it was called to reports of a Citroen Dispatch van having been in collision with a silver coloured Vauxhall Corsa on the A406 at Pinkham Way, N11, on Monday, November 30, around 8.49pm.

The force said that the Vauxhall Corsa was stationary in the slow lane due to a flat tyre. Inside the car were one woman and four children.

All the occupants of both vehicles were taken to hospital, police said.

A four-year-old girl from the Corsa suffered a non-life threatening, but potentially life changing head injury.

She remains in hospital undergoing treatment.

The others did not sustain serious injuries.

Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone with dash-cam footage to come forward.

Detective Constable Maciej Mielcarek of the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command said: “I am interested in speaking to anyone who witnessed this collision or who may have captured any part of it on dash-cam.

“I know that a number of good Samaritans stopped at the scene to help, for which we are very grateful, but I also need to speak with those people in order to piece together the sequence of events.

“A child has been seriously injured and it is important that we establish the circumstances surrounding the incident. If you saw anything before, during or immediately following this collision please do get in touch.”

Anyone with information or footage should call police on the dedicated witness line 020 8246 9820, call 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting 6785/30NOV20.
