OAP fighting for life after Archway crash
A pensioner has been left fighting for his life following a horrific crash in Archway this afternoon (Friday).
The 70-year-old man, who was on foot, bounced off the windscreen of a blue BMW, after a collision at the junction of Holloway Road and Junction Road at around 1.50pm.
He was rushed to the Royal London Hospital with life-threatening injuries, including serious head and chest wounds and a suspected dislocated shoulder.
Both Holloway Road and Junction Road have been closed, and traffic is being diverted.
Councillor Ursula Woolley, who represents Junction ward and cycled past the scene, said: “There were crowds and crowds of people gathered and there was someone lying in the road. It looked pretty nasty.
