Police said it looked as though nine vehicles had been racing.

“Police were called at approximately 01:40hrs on Friday, June 7, to reports of a road traffic collision on the westbound carriageway of the A4 by the Hammersmith Flyover.
“At this early stage it is believed three cars were involved in the collision. London Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade attended. One man – aged in his 70s – has been taken to hospital where she remains in a stable condition.
“Three people, two men and a woman, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of dangerous driving.”
