An Uber car has crashed into the gate of Buckingham Palace in the early hours of Sunday Morning.
The incident took place a little before 12:30 a.m. local time, Sunday (7:30 p.m. EST, Saturday). Images of the aftermath of the incident show Police at the scene standing in front of anyone filming or taking photos.
According to initial reports, the car in question appeared to be an Uber and the crash is being treated as an isolated vehicular accident. It is not being looked at as a deliberate act of violence or a terrorist attack (there's a surprise)
"So scary. Loads of police here. Being told to move back by the police,” said Mathew Vincent, who witnessed the scene. "Police were stopping anyone trying to video the scene".
It's not immediately known how many members of the royal family were present at the palace at the time of the attack. Also, it is yet to be determined if the police have apprehended the driver of the car.
TAXI LEAKS EXTRA BIT:
Looks like we could see another cover up of TfL stakeholder Uber. It's already gone from most all UK news channels.
It's been alleged by our insider, that top TfL staff were called in early this morning, to discuss the incident.
Last October, we saw an Uber driver mow down pedestrians on Exhibition Road.
Although eleven members of the public were taken to hospital, the story was killed in the press within hours.
CAN YOU IMAGINE THE NEWS COVERAGE THIS INCIDENT WOULD HAVE RECIEVED, HAD IT BEEN A LONDON TAXI???
This is the second time a car has driven into gates at Buckingham Palace. Back in January 1995, a Volkswagen Sirocco smash through the gates.
