Two motorists hurt after accident shuts Burnham-On-Sea road

Two motorists were rushed to hospital following an accident which closed a busy road into Burnham-On-Sea for over three hours on Sunday (June 17th).

Police closed Queen's Drive, as pictured, after the collision between a motorbike and a car on the railway bridge. One person was flown by air ambulance to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol and a second person was taken by road to Weston General Hospital.

The crash caused long delays for motorists travelling in and out of the town to the M5 motorway.

A police spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Officers were called to a collision involving a motorbike and a car at around 1.45pm."

"The air ambulance was also called and an injured person was flown to hospital with suspected serious injuries."

The air ambulance landed on the road to take the casualty onboard for the flight to Frenchay, as pictured.

The police spokesman added that an investigation into the collision had begun by traffic police officers.

Anyone with information should contact police via their non-emergency number 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
