Jack-knifing lorry accident along A505, no fatalities

Motorists whose cars were collided during a lorry accident on the A505 near Cambridge in Hertfordshire may be able to make compensation claims.

The incident occurred when a 26 tonne lorry jack-knifed on the highway, colliding with four vehicles and spilling diesel onto the road.

The East of England Ambulance Service attended the crash, and crews from the surrounding area also arrived on the scene.

Two people, who were in the same car, suffered reportedly non life-threatening, but serious, personal injury as a result. They were taken to hospital for medical treatment.

The lorry also hit a burger van in the carriageway's lay-by and collided with two other cars before coming to a halt.

The drivers and any passengers in the two other vehicles involved are believed to have escaped injury, and a spokesman for the ambulance service who attended the accident said that "amazingly" the man working in the refreshments van was "uninjured," sustaining only a few scratches.

If the lorry driver is found liable for the incident after police investigations and enquiries, victims of the lorry accident could make personal injury compensation claims for their pain and loss of earnings.
