The helicopter, after colliding with the crane, lost control and came crashing down to Wandsworth Road. Some parts of the crane were splattered all around the floor. As a result, it led to an explosion splitting the fuel all around the road thus increasing chances for fire. Later, the cars and the buildings also caught fire, which was inevitable.
Eyewitnesses also stated that there was a loud explosion. Some eyewitness, who worked close to the location where the crash occurred, initially thought that it was a terrorist attack. It was understandable as the scene had turned black with smoke.
