Car smash causes traffic hold-up in Highbridge town centre

Highbridge was briefly brought to a standstill this afternoon (Thursday) after this car accident in the centre of the town.

Queues of traffic built up in Church Street after a car slammed into the back of a truck, as pictured, at around 2.30pm.

"The driver of the car was clearly shaken by the accident but fortunately was not injured," an eyewitness told

The crash caused traffic problems for motorists passing through the town centre while Somerset Highways cleared up a large oil spill left by the vehicle.
