Bucks Free Press: London Road closed after collision London Road closed after collision

THE A40 London Road through High Wycombe was closed earlier today after a serious collision involving a van and a motorbike.

The collision, on the stretch between Hatters Lane and Bassetsbury Lane, was first reported just after 10am.

The road was shut completely, causing long tailbacks through the town centre as an air ambulance was reportedly called out to the scene.

The road has since reopened.

Full details of the collision will appear on this website once they have been released by Thames Valley Police.

Thoughts are with the families involved.

Thoughts are also with the children playing within the vacinity of their own homes (Easter half term) as the risk of an accident in routes now being taken by commuters at speeds of over 30mph in built up areas..... Another accident awaiting to happen!

Aren't you being a little presumptuous on the cause of this accident? We don't know what happened and whilst, as you say, thoughts are with the families involved why is there a need to mention other unconfirmed factors?

I did not assume any cause of accident.
What I did state was firstly my thoughts are with the families involved (ie those who are related to the parties involved in the collision) and secondly that due to the volume of traffic which had been diverted away from the London Road and using side roads (which are usually a lot quieter and most certainly not designed to entertain A road traffic volume) that another accident may occur. Was it not ok to voice my concerns and possibly indirectly alert parents of children on side roads to be a little more vigilant considering this awful accident of earlier? Silly me for being considerate.......
