TWO HIGH-PERFORMANCE cars that collided in Kingsland Road late this morning narrowly avoided hitting other road users or pedestrians.
The cars crashed within metres of shoppers and cashpoint users at the Tesco Hackney Express shop on the corner of Lee Street, Haggerston E8 4DN.
A Tesco staffer said the cars had been going “very fast” and the two-door sports car, which was carrying a passenger, had rolled several times, dangerously close to the store.
A man was taken to hospital with minor injuries. A motorist has been summonsed to appear in court.
The accident may have been filmed: police are taking a recording from a security camera in the area.
