CAR OVERTURNED: Seventh serious crash on Royston Park Road in Pinner

 Published on: 20th May 2021   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

Emergency services were called to another serious car crash on Royston Park Road in Pinner at around 6pm on Wednesday, May 19.

The accident is the seventh serious crash on the road this year alone, and residents are fearful that tragedy awaits, saying “it is a miracle that nobody has died.”

In the most recent crash yesterday, a car was flipped upside down and somebody had to be cut out of the overturned car.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We were called at 6.11pm yesterday (May 19) to reports of a road traffic collision on Royston Park Road, Pinner.

“We sent an ambulance crew, a medic in a car, and an incident response officer. A man was treated at the scene and taken to a hospital.”

Resident Sara Rigby said: “We are seriously concerned for our safety following yet another serious accident making it seven this year. Urgent action from the local council has been requested several times for temporary measures to be put in place whilst speed reduction schemes are being considered but nothing has been forthcoming.”

Councillor John Hinkley told MyLocalNews today: “This morning we escalated the issue above the traffic department. It has been escalated to Harrow Council Chief Executive Sean Harriss to see how the departments can work together in the interim whilst we wait for the speed reduction measures to be implemented.

“We are taking this very seriously, funding for speed reduction measures is in place and the measures are about to be published and implemented.” 

David Simmonds CBE MP previously told PinnerNews: “I am supportive of the efforts of the ward councillors to secure action from Harrow Council, who is due to consult with residents about measures to improve road safety. 

“I understand from the ward councillors that they are also discussing with the police about short term measures such as warning signs while a longer-term solution is sought.”
