There was significant traffic congestion across Chiswick this Saturday evening (9 April) after a serious collision on the A4 near Sutton Court Road.

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

A woman from one of the vehicles involved was taken to hospital as a precaution but she has since been discharged. Eye-witnesses report that at least one person had to be cut out of their car by firefighters.

No arrests were made following the incident.

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

The area has long been an accident blackspot with collisions regularly taking place.

One local resident contacted us after the incident to say, “The area around the Sutton Court Road junction has been dangerous for years and the authorities have been saying that they would do something about it all that time. The recent changes seem to have been more about ULEZ enforcement than safety because the accidents continue – there have been three serious ones in the vicinity recently. I’m not sure what the circumstances of them were but it needs to be considered if blocking off northbound traffic from entering the Grove Park area and forcing it to use the A4 and the short phase right hand turn by Sutton Court Road has elevated the risk at an already dangerous junction.”

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