The scene in York Way after the ambulance struck a wall

AN ambulance on an emergency call crashed into a juice bar after a collision with a van as it drove through a junction with sirens sounding.

CCTV cameras at the Juice Hub, in York Way, Holloway, at the junction of Camden Road, captured the moment the St John Ambulance vehicle hit a wall. It is believed it was on its way to an emerg­ency.

There were no patients on board and nobody was injured in the August 21 collision.

Footage shows the ambulance smash into a low wall on the edge of the café’s outside seating area before knock­ing over a lamppost.

Ross Lawson, who runs Juice Hub, said: “We heard sirens and a bang and then the ambulance coming towards the shop.”

The junction, a notorious accident blackspot, was redesigned this year.
