The incident happened near the junction with St Thomas’s Road at about 3.45am.

A Met spokesperson said the vehicle had failed to stop for police.

The male rider of the moped and female pillion, both believed to be aged 18, are in hospital. There have been no updates about their current condition.

The section of road remains closed off and pictures from the cordoned scene this morning show an overturned moped with a helmet, clothes and shoes strewn over the pavement.

Police said the case has been referred to the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards and the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC). This is a standard procedure.

An IOPC spokesman said: “Following a referral from the Metropolitan Police, we have begun an independent investigation into a collision involving a moped in north London in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

“We have been informed that the moped had failed to stop for the police prior to colliding with another vehicle. We have sent our investigators to the scene and to a police station to obtain initial accounts from the officers involved.”
