A Ferrari ploughed into a group of teenagers and a cyclist sending two people "flying over the bridge railings and on to the road beneath".

Seven people were injured and taken to hospital after the red Ferrari 458 crashed into pedestrians near Battersea Dogs and Cats Home on Monday morning.

All seven people who were taken to hospital - five boys and two girls, all in their late teens - have now been discharged.

Metropolitan Police officers and paramedics from the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance were called to Battersea Park Road at 10.29am yesterday (Monday, December 12).

The driver - a 35-year-old man - stopped at the scene and was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving, a spokesman for Scotland Yard confirmed. He has been bailed until early April 2017.

Zoe Saxby, from Flanagans pub just yards from the scene, said: "Apparently the car involved was racing with a Range Rover and knocked someone flying off the bridge, and they landed on a car below.

"They actually went flying in the air and could have landed on the railway tracks.

"It also hit a few other people walking on the bridge."

"I didn't see what happened as I'd got to work about ten minutes after it happened, but I saw the car with a smashed windscreen."

Witness Jim Copeman wrote on Facebook: "So I've just seen a Ferrari plough in to a cyclist and 4 other people on the pavement outside Battersea's dogs and cats home, sending 2 people flying over the bridge railings and on to the road beneath and you get arseholes stopping in the middle of the road taking videos and shit.

"Makes me so angry."

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "We sent a paramedic on a motorcycle, four ambulance crews, an advanced paramedic and an incident response officer to the scene alongside our hazardous area response team.

"We treated six patients at the scene and took them to hospital."

Road closures were in place between Nine Elms Lane and the A3216 Queenstown Road while emergency services dealt with the crash.

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police's Serious Collisions Investigation Unit are carrying out enquiries into the crash.

They are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with any information about the crash to contact them on 020 8543 1557.
