Police are investigating a crash in Orpington which left one man in hospital on Wednesday night.

Officers were called to Cray Avenue just after 9.15pm, where the vehicle had smashed in to an Audi and a Mercedes before hitting a tree head on.

London Ambulance Service rushed one man to a south London hospital with injuries deemed “non life-threatening” according to Met Police.

No arrests were made following the accident, though the road was closed overnight for vehicles to be recovered.

Bromley police officers continue to investigate.

A spokesperson from Met Police said: “Anyone who witnessed this incident but has not yet come forward should call Bromley police on 101.”

London Ambulance Service said in a statement: “We were called yesterday at 9.17pm to reports of a road traffic collision on Cray Avenue.

“We sent ambulance crews, an incident response officer and a single responder in a car to the scene, with the first of our medics arriving in four minutes. A team from London’s Air Ambulance was also dispatched by car.

“We treated a patient at the scene for head injuries and took them to hospital as a priority.”
