A60 at Mansfield Woodhouse closed!

There's an overturned lorry at the junction of Peafield Lane and Leeming Lane in Mansfield Woodhouse. The A60 was completely blocked and it looks like it will take a while to clear as it's an ASDA artic full of stock.

It didn't look like any other vehicles were involved and while I was in ASDA, the store manager got word that there were no serious injuries. The lorry is a mess, it's on its side and its load is spilling onto the road, so it will be a while before the road re-opens.

Could someone please post when the road is re-opened.

The Chad is reporting that the current target for the road to reopen is 10pm tonight.

Was good to hear that there were no serious injuries.

Thanks Magic. Yes, it's a miracle that nobody was injured given it happened at a busy junction. Ironically, Julie and I were driving to ASDA just after it happened and couldn't believe what we saw. It looked like it had come from Peafield Lane and turned left down onto Leeming Lane, which is on a bit of an adverse camber.

The cab just managed to miss the garden wall of a house and I'll bet the house owners had a shock. It had a full load of stock being delivered to the store which they'd have to remove before they could lift the lorry off its side, so it was never going to be a quick clean up.

Looks like there was an accident on the Cuckney side of Cuckney Hill last week - there's a lamp post down and a big gap in the hedge. I haven't heard any details though.

An incident on Eastfields Lane this afternoon around 3.15. A nearly new Renault Megane sideways across the road with serious damage front and rear, and four police cars in attendance; it looked like the aftermath of a Youtube high-speed police chase!
