Pitsea Flyover blocked after multi-vehicle smash

A MULTI-VEHICLE smash is causing long delays on the A13 in Pitsea this evening.

The crash, between the Pitsea Flyover and Sadlers Farm roundabout, closed three lanes of the eastbound carriageway and is causing long delays and queueing traffic back to the Five Bells Interchange.

Police and ambulance services were called at 5.50pm and are currently on site trying to reopen the road as soon as possible.

Two lanes have now reopened, leaving one still closed with congestion to the Stanford-le-Hope turnoff.

There are two casualties from the incident, however their injuries are not thought to be serious.

Do not be silly. Its 'Car Crime' or sometimes known as motoring offences. That's not real crime.

WHEN will people drive better? One of those involved is Obviously to blame for their own actions and causing the mayhem. Perhaps if we saw MORE police out on the roads, instead of in their canteen, then there would not be so many sheer idiots on our roads.

IT is NOT just Essex where there is a Vast lack of Police, but ALL over the UK these days.

Tell you a good place to drive at 100mph... the edge of the cliffs at Beachy Head.

Do avail yourself sometime....

then we might all get some peace from your rabid verbal diarrhoea and sheer crass stupidity.

You're a Grade A numpty and a totally pointless waste of space.
