The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A CRASH on a ma­jor road at peak time caused traf­fic chaos in Peter­bor­ough.

A car and a lorry were in­volved in the col­li­sion at about 7.40am yes­ter­day morn­ing.

No­body was se­ri­ously hurt in the in­ci­dent but it forced the clo­sure of the Eye round­about on Frank Perkins Park­way and the slip road to Oxney Road.

Wit­nesses re­ported bumper to bumper traf­fic on the sur­round­ing streets.

Sev­eral cars were re­ported to have been in­volved in shunts as the traf­fic got worse.

Fire­fight­ers, paramedics and the po­lice were on the scene from about 7.45am.

Spe­cial­ist equip­ment was used to free a man from the car.

The road was blocked for more than an hour while po­lice waited for re­cov­ery of the ve­hi­cles.

Traf­fic was re­turned to run­ning smoothly by about 10am.
