A London Underground supervisor has described the "unbelievable" moment he saw a man climb out of a car unhurt after it ploughed through a barrier and landed outside a subway entrance .
Transport for London (TfL) supervisor, Michael Macefield, had been working through the night at Hanger Lane station, in Park Royal , when he heard a "loud bang" at around 5am.
The Hammersmith resident, who has been in his role for six months, left his office and was astonished to see a car had landed outside the subway entrance.
But to his amazement, Mr Macefield said the driver climbed out of the car unhurt before climbing back in to get his possessions before leaving the scene.
He said: "It was at about 5am I heard a loud bang so I went to have a look and that was when I saw the car there.
"Someone was trying to get out, the door was halfway open, there was someone trying to climb out.
"He was completely unhurt. He got out and had a look at the car for a few seconds and realised straight away it was a write-off.
"Then he went back to get something, a phone or wallet, then just took off."
Metropolitan Police said it was called to the scene to reports of a collision, but said the driver had left before officers arrived.
The car reportedly went onto the roundabout, through a barrier and down into the subway entrance outside Hanger Lane station.
Mr Macefield added the driver looked "dazed and confused" when he left the car.
He said: "He seemed dazed, he was concerned about the car but he didn't say anything about where he was going or why he was leaving the scene.
"It was only me and one other person, a van which pulled up. He just looked a bit dazed and confused but was not injured.
"The car has piled through a barrier and it has fallen about eight or 10 feet, so it was really surprising that not only did this guy survive he just got out and walked off.
"He was not in any pain at all. It is unbelieveable."
