A road crash between an Audi A3 and lorry on the A12 at Lochnagar Street at about a quarter part midnight this morning required four ambulances to take four men to hospital.
The A12 is closed southbound from Bow Roundabout and northbound from the A13 on the approach the Blackwell Tunnel.
London Ambulance Service, London Air Ambulance medics, Metropolitan Police from Tower Hamlets and the London Fire Brigade all responded to the collision.
The recovery of damaged vehicles from the scene and the road traffic investigation mean ‘closures may remain in place for some time.’
The Met Police advise drivers ‘to find alternative routes,’ as ‘significant delays expected.’
The four men travelling in the Audi A3, were injured in this collision and have been taken to an east London hospital where their condition is currently being assessed.
