A busy junction was shut during this morning’s rush hour after a car and a scooter collided.

Both drivers were rushed to hospital after the incident outside Manor House Tube Station, at the junction of Green Lanes and Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park at around 6.15am.

The 30-year-old driver of the car suffered a head injury and was taken to the Royal London Hospital as a priority.

The rider of the scooter, thought to be in his 40s, was taken to the same hospital with a suspected broken leg.

Police say neither injury is life-threatening but could be life-changing.

There we no arrests.

Commuters suffered traffic chaos in all directions as the junction was closed until around 9am.
