Po­lice warn­ing to peo­ple who filmed A38 ac­ci­dent

Burton Mail - - News -

PO­LICE have said that driv­ers who filmed a crash on the A38 will be pros­e­cuted.

An ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing a van and a lorry caused 30-minute de­lays on the A38 be­tween Bur­ton and Derby on Thurs­day.

Der­byshire Roads Polic­ing Unit (DRPU) said that some driv­ers had “only slowed down to film it on their mo­bile phones”.

When the ac­ci­dent had

cleared, at around 8.30am, DRPU took to Twit­ter to warn some “in­con­sid­er­ate” driv­ers that they would be pros­e­cuted and given six points if they were caught film­ing the scene.

They said: “This in­ci­dent is now clear. Just go­ing back to the sta­tion to print No­tices of In­tended Pros­e­cu­tion for the driv­ers who only slowed down to film it on their mo­bile phones.

“Com­pletely in­con­sid­er­ate of those in­volved and those work­ing in the road. Six points en route.”

No­body was in­jured in the ac­ci­dent, which tem­po­rar­ily closed one lane.

Traf­fic caused by the crash, near the A5121 Clay Mills junc­tion was wors­ened by an­other col­li­sion which closed the M42 near Bur­ton, in which a pedes­trian was killed.
