City gridlock after London Road three-car crash

TRAFFIC is currently gridlocked on Worcester city centre, thanks to an accident in London Road and roadworks in the Tything and Severn Terrace.

The three-car accident happened about an hour ago, and although it is not thought to have involved serious injuries, it has brought one of the main routes out of the city to a near-total standstill during evening rush-hour.

A police source said that the accident combined with the scheduled roadworks had caused gridlock on some of the city’s busiest roads.

He said police officers were directing traffic around the site of the accident and hoped to have London Road opened as soon as possible.

Three children had to be helped from a car which left the M4 and hurtled down an embankment.

The accident happened at about 8pm last night, eastbound, between the Second Severn Crossing and the junction where the M4 and M48 merge.

Avon Fire and Rescue group manager William Roberts said fire crews from Avonmouth, Patchway and Bedminster attended.

By the time they arrived, Avon and Somerset police had already helped children aged 12, seven and two out of the car and they were given first aid for minor injuries.

Firefighters used hydraulic cutters to get a man and a woman out of the front of the car.

South Western Ambulance Service sent an air ambulance crew in a rapid response vehicle, a hazardous resources team and a regular ambulance.

At least two of the occupants – the man and the woman – were taken to Frenchay Hospital for treatment.

The man had suffered head injuries, which are not thought to have been life-threatening.

Police say driver was texting when car struck, killed motorcyclist

Anne Arundel County police say a 20-year-old Severn woman has been charged with negligent manslaughter by motor vehicle after cell phone records indicate she was using her cell phone when the car she was driving struck a motorcycle, killing the driver.

Jonathan Wesley Roberts, 30, of Virginia, died in the accident, which occurred in March 10 in Gambrills.

Police said Elizabeth Haley Meyers, was attempting to cross northbound Route 3 when the 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt she was driving traveled into the path of a 2007 Suzuki motorcycle, driven by Roberts in the left lane. The motorcycle struck the driver’s side of the Chevrolet.

Roberts suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Police said a witness told officers that he saw Meyers texting on a cellphone as she pulled into the roadway, and police said cellphone records corroborated that statement.

The Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office reviewed the case and charged Meyers with negligent manslaughter by motor vehicle, criminal negligent manslaughter, text messaging while driving, reckless driving and other charges. Police said Meyers was served an arrest warrant Oct. 2.

A spokeswoman for the State’s Attorney’s Office said this is the county’s first auto manslaughter case where text messaging while driving is an element of the case.
