Crash in Croydon leaves town centre gridlocked
A CAR crash in Croydon has caused long tailbacks in the town centre.
Three vehicles collided at the junction between Drummond Road and Tamworth Road at about 3.20pm, but the damage caused is said to be minor.
One of the vehicles involved was an unmarked police car, but a spokesman stressed it was not responding to an emergency call at the time.
One woman has been taken to hospital as a precaution, but the patient is not a police officer or staff member.

It is understood that the incident involved a car striking the back of the unmarked police car, which in turn shunted the vehicle in front.
Traffic is currently backed up around the one-way system in central Croydon, with congestion reported on roads including the A232 Flyover and Church Road.
There is particularly slow traffic on Tamworth Road, where one lane is currently closed with police directing vehicles, including those leaving the Centrale car park.
There is also an ongoing police operation targeting uninsured drivers in Croydon.
Ten vehicles have been seized so far and four people have been arrested as part of Operation Cubo.
