Crash causes Burnley rush hour traffic chaos


A CRASH has caused a major blockage along a busy stretch of Burnley road.

Police were forced to shut off Princess Way after two cars collided close to Brougham Street at around 3-06 p.m.

Traffic was backed up along the stretch leading to Junction 11 of the M65 motorway while police recovered the Land Rover Freelander and Vauxhall Zafira.

Paramedics treated a man and a woman at the scene but there were no serious injuries in the accident.

Officers hoped to have Princess Way fully re-opened after the cars were recovered.
