As debris is hurled over the A50, a large caravan crash causes traffic congestion.

On the A50 Westbound in Derbyshire, a massive caravan crash has caused pandemonium.

A car, which looked to be pulling the caravan, collided with a lorry, according to Derbyshire Road Policing Unit. There were no injuries despite the debris being hurled across the road.

J4 A38 Toyota to J5 A516 Hilton on the A50 westbound will be “blocked to allow the rescue of this automobile, caravan, and lorry.”

The amount of the damage caused by the crash can be seen in footage supplied by the policing force.

While cops deal with the incident, one lane of the highway looks to be closed, and traffic is going slowly.

This comes only days after a three-vehicle incident shut down two lanes of the M1 northbound in Derbyshire.

On Friday, a van and three automobiles were involved in an accident between the Tibshelf Services and Junction 29 towards Chesterfield.

Congestion had reached Junction 28 for Alfreton and Mansfield, with lines reaching for six miles.

According to initial accounts, one of the automobiles involved was driving sideways on the carriageway, facing the central reservation, while the other was driving in lane three to the side.

The incident involved four vehicles, according to Derbyshire Police, although no one was wounded as a result of the collision.

A motorist had perished days before in an incident on the A38 at Mickleover, Derby, involving three Army trucks and an HGV.

The HGV driver, a 53-year-old man, was seriously injured and proclaimed dead on Wednesday at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre.

Derbyshire Constabulary said at the time: “Three army trucks and an HGV were involved in the incident, which occurred at 1.45pm yesterday (29 September) on the northbound length of the motorway near Mickleover.

“The HGV driver, a 53-year-old man, suffered critical injuries and was pronounced dead later that day at Queen’s Medical Centre.

“His family is aware of the situation, and our sympathies are with them right now.

“Any drivers having dashcam footage, particularly of the seconds leading up to the tragedy, are encouraged to contact detectives investigating the event.

“Anyone with information should contact Derbyshire police via one of the ways listed below, using reference 21*566586.”
