A car was left on its roof after a multi-car collision yesterday - the third in Holloway in just a few days.
The vehicle collided with a parked car, skidded and flipped upside down, colliding with four other cars in the process, at about 2pm on Hornsey Road near the junction of Arthur Road.
The 45-year-old male driver was treated at the scene for injuries caused by his seatbelt - no one else was injured and no arrestes were made.
Road closures were in place until about 4pm.
On Tuesday last week, a teenager was rushed to hospital after a “horrific” collision with a Royal Mail van nearby Seven Sisters Road.
Then the following day, just feet away on the same road, a motorcyclist was rushed to hospital with chest injuries after a collision with a lorry.
Cllr Caroline Russell, Islington Council’s opposition Green Party member, said: “I am glad that no passers by or other road users were harmed in this case, but the frequency of these serious collisions indicates a need to enforce 20 mph speed limits on borough roads and for Transport for London to reduce limits on their roads to 20mph too.
