Hockerill collision: Woman injured and London Road closed
A woman was taken to hospital with minor injuries by ambulance following a collision at the Hockerill crossroads in Bishop's Stortford on Tuesday evening (October 7).
Members of all three emergency services were called to the scene of the accident on the A1060 London Road, which happened at about 6.45pm.
Two cars, a grey Ford Focus and a Peugeot 208, were involved. A bystander reported seeing a woman being helped from the Focus, put in a neck brace and taken in a stretcher chair to a waiting ambulance.
Police cordoned off the stretch of London Road between the Hockerill junction and Station Road to traffic and to pedestrians while emergency service workers dealt with the aftermath.
Two fire and rescue service engines, two police cars and an ambulance were at the scene, with about a dozen emergency service workers in attendance.
East of England Ambulance Service sent an ambulance and a car from BEARS (Basics Essex Accident Rescue Service), who treated a woman at the scene before taking her to Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow for further treatment and care.
