A 21 year odl man has been seriously injured after crashing while being chased.
According to witnesses a long stretch of road was littered with debris in Elmers End.
Police state that an unmarked police vehicle attempted to stop the car in Long Lane Croydon just before 2am. The car then overturned after failing to stop and is now little more than shell.
Roads are closed in West Wickham and Croydon with very long delays. Buses are on diversion:
