Another serious crash on the Linden Road

Another serious crash took place on the Linden Road just after midnight on Friday evening of the 23rd October.

Four people were hurt in a two car crash on the section of Linden between Bournville Lane and Maryvale Road.

A silver car and a black Nissan Qashqai were involved and a West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found two cars that had suffered very extensive damage. The Qashqai had nothing left in front of the wheels. The silver car was also badly damaged.

The occupants of both cars suffered a mixture of injuries requiring attendance at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Clearly from the picture excessive speed must have been a contributory factor.

This is only the latest in a series of serious smashes on the Linden Road. A month ago a car was almost destroyed after it ploughed into railings opposite the Friends Meeting House. The BVC is very concerned. It is acutely aware of how busy the Linden Road is for pedestrians with the presence of the shops, the schools, the church, the park and the entrance to Cadbury World.

It is clear that some redesign measures need to be taken to slow vehicles down on the Linden Road. We shall be raising this matter as a matter of urgency with our local councillors.
