Barrow road reopens after crash

AN ELDERLY woman was injured in a three-car crash on Park Road in Barrow yesterday.

Two vehicles, a Nissan Micra and a Renault Megane, collided towards the centre of the road near County Coach Builders.

A third vehicle, a Volvo S40, was involved in the accident and left the road, hitting a nearby fence.

Ambulance, police and fire crews were called to the scene at about 8.25am. The driver of the Micra, an elderly woman, was taken to Furness General Hospital for a check up but here injuries were not said to be serious. 

The driver of the Megane, a 47-year-old woman from Barrow, and the driver of the Volvo, a 47-year-old woman from Ulverston, were both uninjured in the collision.

Traffic was redirected around the Ormsgill area whilst the scene was made safe and many commuters heading into Barrow experienced delays on the surrounding roads.

Park Road was closed for around 30 minutes while emergency services cleared the cars.

The road reopened at around 9am and police worked to clear the congestion quickly.

Have your say

Poacher - will you still say the same when you reach 60 or 65 ? To be logical there should be re-tests every 5 years irrespective of age .

How about giving this old chestnut a rest Poacher.It wasn't stated who was to blame.Two of the drivers were 47 years old.
Older drivers do not race down residential streets where children are playing despite the presence of 'Twentie's Plenty ' signs.We have had to have speedbumps installed in our street because of this.
Neither do older drivers race into supermarket carparks.
A lady in her 70's was involved in an accident in our local supermarket carpark last year.She was waiting inline to exit the park when one of these twentysomething expert drivers with razersharp reactions ran into the back of her.
