A picture shared by Harrow Police, shows the damage done to the car, with a broken off part of the axel lying several feet from the car.
Also visible is a destroyed "Give Way" sign, and aspects of the car's engine dangling through the missing wheel area, with the Volvo half-mounted on the pavement.
Police officers in Harrow do not believe any other vehicles were involved in the crash.
