A two car collision left the A38 partially closed on Monday morning.

Two damaged cars remained on the scene of the incident, by the turning to Whiteball, as of 10am on the morning of Monday, May 24.

Two police officers and an ambulance crew were seen attending the incident, with the ambulance departing the scene by around mid morning. It is understood an individual was conveyed to Musgrove Park Hospital.

A section of the left hand lane on the A38 by the turning to Whiteball on the Wellington side was closed by police.

A telehander was also seen at the roadside, which is believed to have been used to clear one of the cars from the highway.

The crash occurred just yards away from a tribute to Elliot Sparks, who was killed in a crash at the 'accident blackspot' in 2021.

Campaigners, including Elliot's father, have called for additional safety measures to be introduced on the road, where nine people have been killed in 20 years.

It is understood plans are underway to introduce an average speed camera to the road, which if implemented, could be the first of its kind on a Somerset A road.

In addition to the cameras, other measures are being considered, include the construction of 170 metres of crash barrier, changes to the traffic flow around Hollywell Lake Lane and the introduction of a 50 mph limit on the main road.

Sampford Arundel Parish Council chairman Janet Lloyd has been campaigning for additional safety measures on the road for 20 years. She said: "We definitely need the cameras, whatever sort of cameras they are. I think we have had around 10 fatalities in 22 years.

"Hopefully, these plans go ahead. We dance with death when we come out onto the main road."
