Thoughts and prayers go out to the two injured people.
Hope they make a quick recovery.

The scene does not look good by any means.

Two speedsters in one, by the look of that car, and the obvious bike, shame as it was such a clear late afternoon, perfect driving conditions, apart from the added ingredients, motorcycle and car with go fast styling...

I have no idea what happened in this crash but this is a very dangerous road where two lanes merge into one. Cars race from the traffic lights to be first through the single lane caused by a pavement out build. On the plus side the crash happened outside the doctors surgery.
