Serious collision, near Hayle
Both drivers injured
Shortly after 3pm on the 22nd September 2020, Police, Fire and Ambulance were called to the scene of a serious road traffic collision on the A30, near to Loggans, Hayle.
Two vehicles were involved with both drivers sustaining severe injuries. It would appear that one of the vehicles was trying to perform a U turn.
Both drivers were taken to Treliske Hospital, Truro and the road was closed for some time whilst an investigation took place. Diversions were directed through Connor Downs.
Once a full examination of the scene had been completed, the road was re-opened. Police would like to thank the public for their patience whilst the road was closed. They would also like to take the opportunity to remind all road users that the ‘No U turn’ signs have been placed on the carriageway for serious safety reasons. It is a very dangerous manoeuvre which has caused a number of fatalites over the years.
Thanks is also extended to those members of public who stopped to help and administer first aid. Your assistance was very much appreciated.
Police would like to hear from any witnesses to the collision, particularly those who may have captured Dashcam footage. Please phone 101, quoting log number 506 of 220920.
