Driv­ers warned of ‘treach­er­ous’ stretch of road

Woman res­cued from car af­ter ac­ci­dent

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

DRIV­ERS have been warned to take care on a ‘treach­er­ous’ stretch of road be­tween Uxbridge and Iver Heath fol­low­ing a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent.

A woman had to be res­cued from a car af­ter it ca­reered off Slough Road and into a ditch on Satur­day around mid­day.

Buck­ing­hamshire & Mil­ton Keynes Fire & Res­cue Ser­vice, whose crews re­leased the woman, said it was not able to com­ment on the ex­tent of her in­juries.

Martin Dono­van, who took the photo of the af­ter­math, urged driv­ers on the stretch to ‘take care and slow down’.

He said it was par­tic­u­larly dan­ger­ous as the max­i­mum speed changes from 40mph to the na­tional speed limit ahead of a sharp bend head­ing out of Lon­don, shortly af­ter cross­ing over the M25, but many mo­torists fail to ob­serve the speed limit.

“Uxbridge and Slough peo­ple, please take care and slow down on Slough Road be­tween Cow­ley Mill Road and the Pinewood round­about,” he said. “It looked like the driver lost con­trol on the bend and went over the op­po­site side of the road and into some bushes.

“This is the first ac­ci­dent I’ve seen but you of­ten get peo­ple driv­ing reck­lessly on that sec­tion.

“Peo­ple need to be more cau­tious.”
