bad car crash on the A1000 - heavy traffic
« on: August 19, 2010, 08:24:03 pm »
There has been a bad head-on crash on the A1000 between the bottom of Mymms Drive and that restaurant towards PB (it was an Indian a while ago, may still be).

Multiple police and ambulance.  Traffic was already very heavy about an hour ago, still delays now. 

Avoid if you can.  Hope the occupants are all OK, it looked very messy earlier.

Yes this was awful yesterday. Unfortunately I was the first car behind the silver car that got hit head on.
I was very lucky that my brakes responded as quickly as they did or i would have been a 3rd car in that collision.
Extremely petrifying but heard from the police today that everyone is ok, only minor injuries suffered.
People speed far too often down that part of the a1000 in preparation for the 50mph limit, let this be a warning.

Spotted today a black 04  Mercedes carrying out a ridiculous and suicidal overtaking manouvre near to the A1000 Westfield junction, riding down an oncoming car only to gain 1 place/50yards in a procession of traffic. What a t0sser. There's no use admonishing the driver by posting the reg no. on here as he/she will probably not be able to read but is perfectly happy living in his/her conceited little world whilst endangering all of us other road users.
