A205 shut after car flips over in North Sheen
Drivers face delays after a car hit a lamp post and flipped onto its roof this morning.
The A205 Mortlake Road, in North Sheen, is shut both ways after the accident between the A316 Lower Richmond Road at Chalker's Corner and Taylor Avenue.
There are traffic delays in both directions and drivers are asked to find alternative routes if possible.
The R68 bus is being diverted.
Fire fighters were called to the accident this morning and made the car safe.
A Richmond fire fighter said: “A car hit a lamp post and just flipped onto its roof.
“Amazingly there were no injuries.
“The car was in a state. We just made the car safe.”
A London Ambulance spokesman said they were called at 8am and sent one ambulance crew who treated one man, believed to be in his 20s.
The spokesman said he was checked at the scene but did not need to go to hospital.
