A car has overturned in Sidcup - injuring a 57-year-old man.

The accident happened at 1.50pm yesterday (September 2) on Cray Road opposite the Beck Evans used car garage when a blue Volkswagen reportedly hit a red Vauxhall Corsa which was parked at the side of the road.

The Volkswagen flipped onto its side.

Eye-witness, Lorna McCarthy, aged 41, who lives in Sidcup Hill, was driving on the opposite side of the road when the accident happened.

She said: "I was driving towards the Volkswagen which was going around 30 miles per hour when it hit into the red car.

"The Volkswagen flipped onto its side - I had to brake and all I could think was, 'is it going to keep rolling into me.'

"The car was leaking water but my first thought was that it might be petrol.

"I got out and the driver of the Volkswagen gave me a thumbs-up - he had cut his elbow and the driver of the Corsa had cut his head quite badly.

"It was the scariest thing I have ever seen - I've never seen a car roll before."

Residents of Cray Road have voiced concerns that today's incident was 'an accident waiting to happen.'

Simon Gregory, aged 49, of Middleton Avenue, whose mother lives opposite the scene of the crash, said that due to people parking on the yellow lines outside of the used car garage blocking driver's view around a bend.

He said: "People park on the yellow lines or sometimes with two or four wheels on the pavement.

"It makes it impossible for drivers to see and impossible to cross the road.

"My mother is 76-years-old and has lived in the house for 36 years and now she's too scared to cross the road outside of her own house."

A Met Police spokesman said: "The 57-year-old driver of the parked vehicle, who was in the vehicle at the time, was treated for a minor head injury. 

"The 53-year-old driver of the vehicle that overturned was uninjured."

No arrests were made in relation to the accident.
