Morpeth motorists delayed after car crash

A CAR crash on a busy Morpeth road caused delays for motorists yesterday teatime.

Police received a report at 5.15pm of a collision involving a Vauxhall Corsa and Renault Megane on the A197 near the Sun Inn pub.

There were no serious injuries, although one of the drivers was taken by ambulance to Wansbeck General Hospital as a precaution.

One of the cars was stationed on the road, on the carriageway heading into Morpeth town centre, so officers needed to provide traffic management to allow only one lane of vehicles to move at a time until it was removed.
