Car and tractor towing slurry spreader collide
Meanwhile, a road in the UK was closed earlier this month following a large spillage of slurry.
A collision occurred between a car and JCB Fastrac tractor towing a slurry tanker on Monday, December 7th. Occupants of the Beetle were hospitalised after it was crushed by the tractor on the A19 at Escrick.
In a post on social media, North Yorkshire Police Roads Policing Group said:
“Following this collision on the A19 at Escrick remains closed due to a large spillage of slurry. Please avoid the area if you can as we anticipate long delays.”
“There is a diversion route through the village, but this may not be suitable for HGVs who should use the A64 & A1m instead.”
“The car’s occupants have been taken to hospital with injuries which are not thought to be life-threatening.”
In an update, a police spokesperson confirmed that the road reopened the following morning. Furthermore, they urged motorists to exercise caution when passing the scene “as the surface may be slippery”.
In other news, a tractor towing a trailer crashed into a house in Telford on Thursday, December 10th.
