The driver and two other males suffered minor injuries while a 20-year-old female from Lewisham, who was in the backseat of the grey Fiat Punto, was taken to King’s College Hospital with life threatening injuries to her head and pelvis.

She remains in hospital and her condition is said to be stable.

The driver was arrested on suspicion of drink driving, driving without insurance and a licence, and causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

The case has been bailed until June 5.
