Early morn­ing crash

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - Ross Thom­son

Two ve­hi­cles were in­volved in a early morn­ing crash in a Colt­ness street on Tues­day morn­ing.

At around 7.40am on Au­gust 28, a Vaux­hall Corsa col­lided with a Seat Ibiza in North Dry­burgh Road.

The emer­gency ser­vices were called but a Po­lice Scot­land spokesman told the Wishaw Press that there were no re­ports of se­ri­ous in­juries and no- one was taken to hos­pi­tal.

Ear­lier this month, one Colt­ness Com­mu­nity Coun­cil­lor de­scribed the street as a “rat run”.

Speak­ing at a re­cent com­mu­nity coun­cil meet­ing, Robert McClin­tock added: “Vans stop reg­u­larly at the bus stop and be­fore long there’s a build-up of traf­fic.

“Some­thing needs to be done about it.

“Will it take some­one ly­ing man­gled in their car be­fore some­thing is done about it?”

Mur­dos­toun coun­cil­lor Cameron McManus also spoke out on traf­fic prob­lems on North Dry­burgh Road.

He said: “It’s a hellish turn and with the num­ber of parked cars it has es­sen­tially be­came a one late road.

“There are also a num­ber of bus stops there as well.

“I’m quite sur­prised there hasn’t been an ac­ci­dent.”
