A ONE Show presenter was rushed to hospital after being involved in a serious crash with an ambulance and two other cars on one of Britain’s wealthiest streets.
Angela Scanlon was in an Addison Lee private car when it collided with the private ambulance in swanky The Bishops Avenue – nicknamed “billionaires row” – in north London.
Witnesses say the Addison Lee car had been hit by a van which had originally been struck by a BMW.
The 37-year-old star was treated by medics at the scene and then transferred to hospital.
The drama unfolded at 9.30am on Tuesday and left the vehicle the presenter was in close to a write-off.
A shocking photo shows it badly damaged in the street, where prices hit £17 million – with its airbag inflated from the impact of the crash.
Cops closed the road while emergency services dealt with the incident.
Sources say the up-and-coming star was released from hospital shortly later and was said to be “doing ok”.
It comes as she presents the BBC One 7pm magazine style show with former footballer Jermaine Jenas this week.
The crash took place just a five minute drive from her home.
A local said: “It was a serious crash which involved four vehicles.
“It made a hell of a racket. Quite loud bangs.
“It was four vehicles in total.
“People looked shocked and shook up.
“The damage to the Addison Lee was quite bad and the ambulance itself had to be taken away.
“It was shocking. The ambulance arrived quickly and took Angela away.”
TAKEN TO HOSPITAL
She later posted on Instagram a plug to her friend’s cooking book.
A source said: “She’s fine now.
“I think it came as quite a shock though.
“The police l and paramedics attended.”
Angela has stood in for permanent One Show Alex Jones on numerous times in the last few years.
The Welsh star has also presented documentaries on BBC 3 and the BBC 2 property programme Your Home Made Perfect.
She also hosted two series of a revived version of cult hit Robot Wars.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “Police were called at 09:32hrs on Tuesday, 14 September to reports of a collision involving several vehicles – including a private ambulance – on Bishops Avenue at the junction with Bancroft Avenue, N2.
“Officers attended. One person was taken to hospital by the London Ambulance Service.
“The road was closed whilst emergency services were at the scene.”
A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "We were called at 9:27am on 14 September to reports of a road traffic collision involving a private ambulance on Bishops Avenue, N2.
"We sent an ambulance crew and an incident response officer to the scene.
"We treated a woman and took her to hospital."
