DRIVERS of two lorries and a bus involved in an accident which closed the A141 today all escaped serious injury.

The woman driver of the Norfolk Green bus involved in the accident was badly shaken, said a police officer at the scene. She was taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon for a check up.

Traffic was diverted off the A141 Wisbech Road Westry, where the crash occurred and created long delays as motorists found alternative routes.

Police were called to the three-vehicle collision shortly before 2.25pm at the junction of Wisbech Road and Hostmoor Avenue.

A spokesman said details were sketchy but one vehicle involved was a lorry and another was a bus.

The road was closed in both directions.
