A PASSENGER was airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries following a horrific car crash.

The driver of a black Vauxhall Corsa lost control of the vehicle on a left bend before smashing into a silver Ford car in Main Road in Biggin Hill.

The male passenger was trapped in the Corsa and had to be freed by firefighters before being taken by air ambulance to Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel, on June 3. His is believed to be in a stable condition. One driver was taken to Princess Royal University Hospital, Farnborough, with minor injuries, but it is unclear which car he was in.

A spokesman for Bromley Police said: "We have more than 500 miles of road in Bromley, including part of London's strategic road network, and the highest level of vehicle ownership in London.

"There is always danger, and we cannot mitigate all risk. The message to everyone is to please show respect to other road users and stay alert at all times."

Main Road was closed from the junction of St Winifred's Road close to the Fox and Hounds pub until around 8pm last Wednesday night.
