A525 remains shut in both direction almost eight hours after lorry flipped onto its side
A stretch of the A525 remains closed in both directions almost eight hours after a lorry overturned. Emergency services were called to the A525 near Halghton Mill, between Bangor-on-Dee and Whitchurch at 12:40 pm, after the vehicle flipped onto its side. Crews from North Wales Fire Services and the Welsh Ambulance Service responded to reports of a person trapped in a vehicle.
A woman was treated at the scene but did not require hospital treatment. The road remains closed while emergency services assess the damage caused and to recover the vehicle. Check the latest travel updates in your area below:
Shortly before 4pm, North Wales Police Road Policing Unit shared an update on Facebook that minor damage had been caused to the bridge and fencing. They said: “With regards to the RTC on the A525, it is still closed and we are on scene with recovery and the environmental agencies regarding spillage of loads. “We will update as soon as we can however expect it to be closed still for some time.
Thank you. “To add no injuries to any party and the damage is minor to the bridge and fencing, the road will be opened ASAP.” A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called at 12.40 pm by North Wales Police to the bridge by Halgton Mill to reports of a lorry turned on its side.
“We responded with an ambulance and discharged a patient at the scene.” The fire service said they sent a crew from Wrexham and a crew from Whitchurch to the crash. They were initially called to reports of a person trapped, but on arrival, nobody had been trapped in the incident.
A woman was cared for by paramedics, while fire crews made the scene safe. Police urged motorists to avoid the area as a result of the crash. They said: “Please be aware, the A525 at Halghton Bridge will be closed for the foreseeable time due to an overturned HGV.
Please avoid the area.” Elsewhere, the A55 was partially blocked following a two-vehicle crash on the eastbound carriageway at St Asaph. Motorists were warned to expect delays as emergency services dealt with the collision at around 1.30 pm on Monday.
Nobody was badly hurt as a result of the crash. An ambulance service spokesperson said: “We were called at 1.27 pm by North Wales Police to reports of a two-vehicle collision with two casualties, one from each vehicle. “One ambulance attended and both were discharged on scene.”
The crash was cleared by 2.15 pm
