Thanks to a four car traffic collision that occurred during rush hour in Twyford recently, one woman was left needing medical treatment for whiplash-related injuries.
The collision occurred just before 8 o’clock in the morning, which resulted in the female driver, aged 38 years, to report whiplash accident claims to her insurer.
The female motorist’s injuries were severe enough that she needed to have an ambulance called in order to be treated.
Three other cars were involved in the motor accident claim, which occurred near the Golden Cross at the A321 Waltham Road. Following the traffic accident claim, Station Road was closed for the better part of an hour, only being re-opened at approximately ten minutes to nine.
Out of the three other cars that were involved in the collision, which included a silver Nissan and a black Honda, only the male driver of a red VW Polo faced being reported for driving carelessly.
In related news, Twyford Parish Council members have recently been discussing plans to make an accident blackspot more safe by altering a dangerous junction.
Plans, which included making an extension to a traffic island, introducing a slip road, or cutting speeds at the junction of the London Road and A4 Bath Road have all been cited as proposed ways that the Wokingham Borough Council could use to reduce the amount of accidents occuring at the junction.
The proposals were discussed by the Twyford Parish Council last month at a meeting. The September 21 council meeting ended with an agreement on the Council’s part that measures to improve the junction must be taken.
Councillors at the meeting reported that the junction had been the location of several collisions; as many as eight traffic accidents had occurred at the location, according to some reports.
