A COLLISION between a large tanker lorry and a car caused long delays for motorists after emergency services battled for three hours to clear the wreckage.

The collision happened on Erin Road, at Poolsbrook, about 2.40pm, on Thursday, October 18, between a Volvo and a lorry.

A police spokesman said: “No one was seriously hurt but the lorry driver had to go to hospital for treatment to an injured hand.”

The lorry came to rest up an embankment and partially blocked the road so police closed off the route and it was not re-opened until just before 6pm.

Witnesses can call Derbyshire Constabulary on 101 or (01773) 572929.
