Loose trailers cause long A14 delays
DETACHED trailers on the A14 caused long delays in both directions last night (Tuesday).
At around 6pm a trailer became detached from a 7.5-tonne vehicle on the westbound carriageway about half a mile before junction 23, Spittals interchange.
The loose trailer blocked the inside lane, causing several miles of queuing traffic for more than an hour afterwards.
Shortly afterwards, at about 6.20pm, a trailer became detached from a Transit van at the top of the eastbound access road at junction 24, Godmanchester, resulting in a three-vehicle collision that also involved a Volvo and a heavy goods vehicle.
The driver of the Volvo was treated at the scene by ambulance crews and taken to Addenbrooke’s hospital with injuries described by the police as “not life-threatening”.
