Just after 8.20am today, July 12, fire crews from Bolsover were mobilised to what they said was ‘yet another’ collision at the Palterton crossroads.

Derbyshire Police and East Midlands Ambulance Service were also scrambled to the scene.

Both vehicles sustained heavy damage.

The route has seen a spate of accidents.

The front of a Fiat 500 was left mangled following the crash, and a van had flipped off the road and onto its side.

The drivers involved were left in the care of paramedics.
