I've just come through there! My Dad and I were stuck in traffic where Wallasey Road meets Seaview Road, and my Dad,(who was driving and unaware of any incident,) was voicing his usual complaint about how the lights should be staggered so the traffic can filter instead of everybody trying to go at the same time.
As we approached the lights outside the HSBC bank, we saw a cop getting out of his car parked on the crossing, in front of a sandwich board stating there'd been an accident. So we turned off at Westminster Road to get home, and didn't know until now what had happened.
I hope the injuries suffered by innocent bystanders aren't serious, and I hope the judge throws the book at the a$$-clown responsible when it finally gets to court!
