A four-vehicle pile-up in London left a Mercedes sandwiched between two double decker buses.

The luxury car was pictured squashed after the crash near Goodge Street Tube station.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman told the Daily Express: "Police were called at approximately 11.35 on Sunday to Goodge Street at the junction with Tottenham Court Road following reports of a collision involving several vehicles, including two buses.

"Officers, London Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade attended. The driver and passenger of a Mercedes were treated at the scene."

Richard Beltran witnessed the pile-up and told the Evening Standard: "You have got an Audi TT in the front, and the Routemaster's gone into the back of that.

"An executive Mercedes has then gone into the back of the Boris Bus and has then been shunted by another Boris Bus."

Police said no arrests were made.

In 2012, a woman had an extremely lucky escape after she stepped out onto a road from between two cars - just as another one came careering into them.

The heart-in-mouth moment was caught on CCTV, and captured the moment the woman miraculously survived being crushed between three cars.

The incident occurred when the unnamed lady stepped out on Alum Rock Road, Birmingham.
