Parts of Tooley Street and Jamaica Road was closed by police this afternoon after a two vehicle smash involving a motorcycle and a Mercedes vehicle. (I only saw two vehicles involved so this is unconfirmed report).
The road has been closed between Tooley Street, by the Wetherspoons pub and Tesco, in Jamaica Road.
Several police were in attendance as well as the Highways Agency.
There are frequent crashes on these two busy main roads where motorists have suffered lots of injuries, as seen on crashmap.co.uk, a site which details police crash statistics. Motorists are frequently to be seen driving with mobiles, without a care in the world, along these roads too. I have also seen a motorist eating lunch on his lap and carrying a drink whilst driving on Jamaica Road. It is unsurprising that there are so many crashes here.
