Two men aged 25 and 23 and a woman aged 20 , are killed and another passenger seriously injured when Car ploughs into Toyota Yaris minutes before midnight on New Year's Eve

A woman and two men have been killed and another woman is still fighting for her life after a Toyota Yaris smashed into a lorry minutes before midnight on New Year's Eve. The driver of the lorry was unharmed after a speeding car (pictured centre being removed from the scene) was believed to have been rushing back to a pub in the Longford area of London so its passengers could see in the New Year. The group collided with the freight truck that had been destined for the airport and was believed to have been loaded with dangerous goods that were due to be shipped to Amsterdam. Police are pictured at the scene top right.


Emergency services were called to the scene at the junction of Bedfont Road (pictured above this morning) and Long Lane at 11.39pm following the collision between a white Mercedes HGV and a white Toyota Yaris

Witnesses at the scene said the car had been doing at least 80 miles an hour after it pulled out of the junction just before 11.39pm.

Pictures from the scene show recovery workers taking the white car away, which appears to have blood stains on the car door.

Police officers were also at the scene and evidence was seen in bags on the pavement, while debris littered the floor. 

Those at the scene added that the area was like a 'war zone with bits left all over the road'.

'We heard the two women in the rear of the car screaming. The emergency services got here really quickly and even the fire service went to the incident.

'They had no chance, the car was doing at least 80 miles an hour as it pulled out of the junction into the path of the lorry'.

No arrests have been made, the road remained closed on Wednesday to allow for the recovery of the HGV, and police are appealing for witnesses to contact them. 

A local resident who had rushed out of her home to see what had happened told how the Dnata lorry was already in the water by the time she arrived and how later, medics were trying to save a woman lying in the road for 45 minutes, while another body was under a white sheet.

Barbara Ali, a mother-of-one, said: 'At 11.36pm I texted my friend because I heard a really loud bang. It was like a lorry was jumping from somewhere, that's the only way I can describe it.

'They were doing first aid on a person for 45 minutes. I couldn't see if it was a man or a woman. I can imagine for the paramedics it was a really awful night.

'A fire brigade officer told us the lorry driver had swerved into the river because he was trying to avoid hitting the car.'

The 32-year-old neighbour added: 'This is a really dangerous road. The council needs to do an investigation and cut down some of the bushes which are blocking people from being able to see what is coming around the corner when they pull out of the junction.'

Surrey Police said: 'Officers were called to Bedfont Road at 11.39pm on December 31 following reports of the collision at the junction with Long Lane. The collision resulted in the lorry leaving the road and entering the Longford River, which runs parallel with Bedfont Road.

'A number of emergency services have responded to the incident and the roads in the immediate area are closed while the incident is investigation.'

Sergeant Chris Schultze from the Surrey and Sussex Roads Policing Unit said: 'As part of that investigation we are asking for any witnesses to come forward, and if anyone has any CCTV, dashcam or other information that may assist the investigation to come forward
