Chris Newman, 26, who was sitting in a restaurant opposite, told the Standard: “We heard a loud bang and I looked up to see the car sliding across the street with its wheels missing. It was a big crash and a big impact.
“The driver was out in the street saying ‘did you see what he did?’ I don’t know what he was talking about but it seemed like it might have been the motorcyclist who made him swerve.
“The Audi was completely written off and parts of the car were strewn all over the four lanes of the junction.
“One of the girls in the back of the car had cuts on her face and some bruising and she was visibly shaken up. She was white as a sheet.”
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “Police were called at around 8.20pm last night to a collision involving two cars and a motorcycle in Sydenham Road near the junction with Newland Park Road.
“Fights broke out in the aftermath of the collision, involving around 25 people. Four males were arrested.”They can’t all have been passengers in the cars involved! Whatever happened to this country..?
