This was the scene as on-lookers gathered at the latest car crash on a notorious junction in Morden.

The emergency services were called to the junction of St Helier Avenue and Middleton Road yesterday evening after two cars collided with each other at the traffic lights.

The road was blocked while police officers and ambulance crews dealt with the incident.

Despite extensive damage to the front of a silver Honda Civic nobody was seriously hurt in the incident just after 7pm on Sunday, July 20.

The other car involved was a silver Toyota Rav4.

A man in his twenties was checked at the scene by paramedics but a spokeswoman for the London Ambulance Service said he did not require medical assistance and nobody was taken to hospital.

A Metropolitan police spokesman said they were called at 7.10pm to reports of a road traffic collision.

The spokesman added the drivers exchanged names and addresses for insurance purposes and police left the scene at 8.21pm.

It is the latest incident on that stretch of road.

A car flipped over at the same junction on Tuesday, June 3, weeks after a collision on Tuesday, May 13 this year.

Transport for London said it would carry out a study of the junction after a complaint to them following the incident in June.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the all red phase at this junction is virtually non-existent. As soon as one road goes red the other goes green.

As a local bus driver on the 80 route this junction causes no end of problems would be great if it was four way filtered before someone dies

Yes I agree with you separate filter lights are the answer it is simple. However the powers that be seem to disagree and have done really nothing over the past 12 months after I have noticed the amount of accidents happening here ! It's just a matter of time before the inevitable does happen. More people need to voice their concerns......come on TFL hurry up please.

I live about a minute away from here and have taken to driving round it because I have my young son in the car and all I see are either smashed up cars that have been pushed down to near the dentists and glass and debris in the road. What with avoiding this and hackbridge where I have to drive past twice a day it's becoming annoying!
