A Mercedes smashed into a telegraph pole and the garden walls of two houses in Bexley Village last night.

The vehicle was severely damaged in the crash, along with the garden walls of two houses on street which were completely destroyed.

Pictures also appear to show that the Mercedes collided with a van parked on a driveway, taking off the front end.

Police were called to Hurst Road at around 8.40pm after reports of the collision.

Hurst road was closed by police while emergency services responded.

Two people were taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service after being treated at the scene.

Their conditions were later assessed as non-life threatening.

A spokesperson for Metropolitan Police said: “At 20:39hrs on Saturday, 2 July police were called to Hurst Road, Bexley following reports of a road traffic collision.
