Woman hospitalised in Hitchin ‘danger road’ collision
A WOMAN has been hospitalised and more people injured and shaken, after a head-on car collision on a road branded danger by residents.
The incident happened on Tristram Road, just before 1pm on Tuesday.
The cars – a Silver C3 Citroen Plurial convertible and a black Vauxhall Astra – collided, with one veering off the road and clipping the ankle of a pedestrian, who was walking on the pavement.
A woman in her mid-thirties was taken to Lister Hospital with abdominal pains. A man, who complained of a neck injury, was not taken to hospital after declining an ambulance. The pedestrian was not hurt.
Christine Anthony, whose 23-year-old son is the pedestrian hit, said that residents have previously complained about the road, claiming it is a danger.
“I’ve only been here a couple of months, but neighbours say it’s been waiting to happen,” said Ms Anthony, who lives in the nearby Lawrence Close.
“It’s a new road coming off the bend and more traffic. It’s very dangerous, and cars come by very fast.”
