Former TOWIE castmember Amy Childs rolls Range Rover but thankfully escapes unharmed
Amy Childs has said she is ‘lucky to be alive’ following a scary accident in north London where her white Range Rover flipped on Wednesday night, smashing her windscreen, roof, and leaving her front bumper hanging off.
Amazingly, the former TOWIE star climbed out of the upside down vehicle and walked away from the crash unharmed.
Paramedics were quick to the scene, checking over the 24-year-old salon owner who appeared to be dazed as she sat on the roadside and concerned witness looked on.
Thankfully, no other vehicles were involved in the collision that happened outside the Napier Arms pub on Woodford New Road near Walthamstow Forest. It is thought that the car struck a traffic island and crashed into two lampposts.
A spokesperson for the star said: ‘Amy is very shaken, ambulance services say she is lucky to be alive. The car is a complete right-off.’
Following the accident Amy Tweeted: ‘I am so lucky to be alive thank you to everyone for your lovely messages, god was definitely watching down on me xxx’
Other TOWIE cast members were also quick to express their relief following the crash. ‘Love you @MissAmyChilds glad you are ok been so worried! Love you xxx’, Amy’s cousin and best friend Harry Derbidge wrote.
Witnesses were quick to identify Amy‘s £60K Range Rover Autograph Sport because of its £80,000 personalised number plates being her well known catchphrase, ‘We11 Jel’.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed that police had been called to an address at Woodford New Road at approximately 10pm ‘following reports of an over-turned car’.
The spokesman added: ‘At this early stage it is believed that the vehicle was in collision with a traffic light. There are no reported injuries at this time and enquiries are continuing.’
Scary stuff! We’re glad Amy is okay.
