CAR­A­VAN CRASH BLOCKS A55

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

THE A55 was left com­pletely blocked in one di­rec­tion fol­low­ing a crash in­volv­ing a car­a­van on Fri­day.

The in­ci­dent, which hap­pened on the west­bound car­riage­way, saw both lanes blocked fol­low­ing a crash in­volv­ing a car and a 4x4 tow­ing a car­a­van.

The crash hap­pened be­tween Llangefni and Gwalch­mai in An­gle­sey.

The car­a­van was badly dam­aged in the smash, which hap­pened at around 12.45pm, with de­bris strewn right across the car­riage­way.

Po­lice of­fi­cers and an am­bu­lance were called to the scene, but it is not be­lieved that any­body was badly hurt.

One lane was re­opened around 15 min­utes af­ter the crash took place, but long queues re­mained for mo­torists trav­el­ling to­wards Holy­head.

Traf­fic Wales wrote on Twitter at around 1.45pm to say that one lane re­mained closed while the car­a­van was re­cov­ered and de­bris cleared from the road.
