Members of the London Police Service continue to investigate after a three-vehicle crash in south London sent two people to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries Tuesday night.
According to a press release from the London Police Service (LPS), emergency crews responded to the area of Wellington Road south of Wilkins Street at approximately 5:20 p.m. in relation to a “serious” multi-vehicle collision.
The collision involved three vehicles, and one driver had to be extricated by the London Fire Department, and was later transported by paramedics to hospital.
Police said a 53-year-old driver in one of the vehicles and a 44-year-old male driver of another vehicle remain in hospital “in good condition” and that all injuries are non-life threatening in nature.

Police had asked the public to avoid the area.
