Location: A69, near Corbridge
After the Simon Yates presentation in Hexham on Thursday night, one of our Team Landrovers assisted at a RTC on the east bound carriageway on the A69. A Vauxhall Corsa and its occupants had had an altercation with the central reservation and ended up stationary across two lanes of the road. The four occupants were also on the carriageway.
Our Team member and one of our Support Group members assisted at the scene. The Team Landrover with blue lights was used to close off the road and the occupants of the Corsa were checked over and asked to remain behind the crash barrier. Northumbria Police were alerted on the Airwave radio.
Once the Police arrived on scene, the Vauxhall Corsa was moved off the carriageway and the Team’s Landrover and members were released to go. Thankfully nobody was injured.
The incident involved 2 Team members for 40 minutes.
