Crash between student car and lorry

A student’s car was damaged by a lorry coming out of the boilerhouse, on campus.

Collision on campusNobody was injured, but the front bumper of the car was ripped off as the lorry turned out of a junction.

The incident which took place last Thursday lunchtime, happened on the main road from Founders to the students’ union.

An increased number of larger lorries have been a common sight on campus, as more construction work takes place.

Students have called for better safety measures around campus, especially from heavy goods vehicles.

A university spokesperson said: ““At around 1.15pm on 14 October 2015 there was a road traffic collision between a student’s vehicle and a lorry in the road near the Boiler House. No injuries were reported and the case is now in the hands of insurance companies.”
