  • Detectives are asking any witnesses or those with dash cam footage to
    come forward following a road traffic collision in Newham.

  • That sounds bad. :(

  • A follow-up piece explaining what happened:

    A musician fears her hopes of becoming a professional cellist might be dashed after she almost lost an arm in a lorry collision near the Olympic Park.

    [...]

    “The crash happened so quickly,” she said.

    “The lorry turned directly across my path and I ended up underneath. I remember picking my arm up from the road and my fingers were white and wouldn’t move. The surgeons told me they were very close to amputating my arm but they were amazing and managed to save it. As a musician, what they did for me goes beyond words.”

    Here's to further healing and improved playing, and that she finds a place in music somehow.
