A man and woman have died after the car they were in flipped along Marsh Wall in Canary Wharf, east London. Metropolitan Police officers have cordoned off the road after the incident, which happened at about 5.15am on 22 January, at the Manchester Road junction.
A third person – a man in his twenties – who was also in the black BMW, was air lifted to hospital with non-serious arm injuries. It is not yet clear if another vehicle was involved in the accident and police remain at the scene to investigate what caused the car to overturn.
A London Ambulance spokesman said: "We were called at 5.19am this morning [Friday 22 January] to reports of a road traffic collision at Marsh Wall in E14. We sent a number of resources to the scene including the hazardous area response team [HART] and a medical team from London's Air Ambulance by car to the scene.
"Sadly, despite extensive efforts, two patients were pronounced dead at the scene by the doctor from London's Air Ambulance. We also treated a man reported to be in his twenties for an arm injury. He was taken as a priority to hospital escorted by the doctor from London's Air Ambulance."
