There were traffic jams across Chiswick on Saturday (9 April) after several cars collided on the A4 near Sutton Court Road.

Four cars were involved in the pile-up which occurred at around 5pm on the westbound lane opposite the Porsche garage. One of the cars involved turned on its roof and caught fire. The police said the two people who were in the car are believed to have left on foot.

One woman involved in the crash was taken to hospital, but has since been discharged. Reportedly at least one person had to be cut out of their car by firefighters.

The A4 was strewn with debris and remained closed for several hours afterwards.

Collisions often take place in the area which has been described as an accident ‘blackspot’.

No arrests were made following the incident.

Any witnesses or drivers with dashcam footage of the collision are asked to call police on 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 4836/09APR.
