Penarth Road in Cardiff – the main route into the city from Penarth – has now been re-opened after being shut by crash this morning
A Royal Mail parcel lorry and a police car were apparently in collision – as a result of which the lorry crashed into the shopfront of a cafe and youth information centre called “The Buzz” near the junction of Penarth Road and Clare road. Rush-hour commuter traffic from Penarth into Cardiff diverted but is now back to normal
The Royal Mail van driver is said to be shaken but not seriously injured . However the two police officers in the police vehicle were taken to the taken to the Emergency Unit at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff where they received treatment for “non-life threatening injuries”.
Quite how the accident happened is, as yet, unclear.
