An accident near the Sutterton roundabout was an anathema to motorists who were on their way home from work. The rush hour traffic at the A16 last night was almost standstill following an accident in the area.

Traffic reported that the mishap happened at 5 o’clock late in the afternoon when a black Vauxhall Corsa crashed with silver Peugeot 206.

The operator of the Peugeot was identified as a 53-year-old woman from Gedney and the other driver was a 23-year-old woman from Boston. Because of the incident, the Gedney woman fractured her leg and shoulder while the Boston woman sustained chest injuries.

Due to the crash, the road was closed until about 8.30pm as traffic was diverted into Kirton. Investigation is ongoing.
