A police patrol unit and an ambulance were called to the junction of Plassey St and Windsor Road this morning following a collision involving two saloon cars .
One of the casualties was treated inside the ambulance but police said later no one was seriously injured.
The safety of this section of the main road into Penarth has been raised as a matter of concern for several years but nothing has yet been done to improve it . The layout at this point is basically a forked Y-junction which has a roundabout inserted in the middle of it.
Sight-lines for motorists when approaching the junction from Penarth Town Centre are poor. Even though traffic emerging from Plassey Street should have priority over vehicles heading West from Penarth , many drivers unfamiliar with the layout, fail to see cars approaching from their right. The cause of today’s collision is not yet known.
New figures released today show there were 181 road accidents in the Vale of Glamorgan in 2015 – compared with 213 in the year ending 2014.
Across the whole of Wales accidents fell from 5,876 in 2014 to 5,543 in 2015.
