Stunned pedestrians looked on as a car drove onto a traffic island.

The blue Ford Mondeo mounted the pavement near the juction between Muswell Hill and Priory Road.

Haringey Independent photographer John McDonald-Fulton, who witnessed the incident, said the car appeared to be swerving to avoid a collision with another car.

He added that a family were standing on the pavement waiting to cross the road at the time, but nobody appeared to be seriously hurt.
