A woman has been badly injured after she was crushed between two cars in what has been described as a ‘possible road-rage attack’ in central London.
The Met Police said officers were looking into claims a Land Rover was driven at the woman, trapping her against a Mercedes, near Hyde Park Corner on Sunday night.
The woman who is aged in her 40s, was taken to hospital where her injuries were described as possibly life-changing. A 23-year-old man was Tasered and arrested at the scene on suspicion of affray. He has subsequently also been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and driving while disqualified in connection with the incident at about 20:15 BST.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “At this early stage it is believed she was the occupant of a car who became involved in a dispute with another car.
“She had got out of her car before being struck by the other car as it attempted to drive away.”
A second man, who complained of feeling unwell at the scene, was taken to hospital and has since been discharged.
