A TWO-year-old girl was one of two people taken to hospital after a collision on a busy bridge over the A414 in St Albans yesterday afternoon (Wednesday).

The child was trapped in one of the cars when a Ford Focus was in collision with a Jaguar driven by a man from St Albans who was later arrested by police.

After the fire service had freed the child from the car, paramedics treated her for chest pains and she and the driver of the Focus were taken to Watford General Hospital. Neither had life-threatening injuries.

Napsbury Lane, on which the accident occurred, was shut from shortly after 3pm when the accident occurred until around 4.45pm

  • The access roads leading to this bridge especially from the A414 slip road are dangerous. This spot is an accident waiting to happen and now it has. There are already flowers regularly marking a railing where a previous accident has occured. if you are waiting to turn right the blind spot beyond the brow of the bridge does not give much time to execute the turn if you then look left quickly and then pull out if its clear. I always use the middle of the slip road on the junction to give m a better line of sight.SADC must review the safety of this junction ASAP.

Commuters caught up in this week’s train chaos after two burst water mains ground Thameslink services to a halt have criticised what they claim is a “shambles.”
