Shrewsbury Wyle Cop van crash company suffers second incident on same day
A delivery van, owned by the same company as the one which rolled into a shop on Wyle Cop in Shrewsbury, was involved in a crash with four other vehicles hours after the first incident.
An APC Overnight delivery van rolled backwards down the Shrewsbury shopping street on Monday morning, mounting the kerb and swerving backwards into an empty shop front.
Meanwhile, a different van owned by the same company was involved with a crash involving a number of other vehicles at about 5.30pm on the same day on the A49 near Preston Island on the outskirts of Shrewsbury.
Eleanor Harris, spokeswoman for West Mercia Police, said: "Police were called at 10am on Monday after a car rolled into a shop front in Wyle Cop in Shrewsbury.
"The road was closed for a short time to allow a structural engineer to ensure the building was safe. No-one was injured during the incident.
"Police were called at 5.30pm on Monday to a report of a collision involving five vehicles on the A49 near Preston Island from Sundorne. Those involved suffered minor injuries only."
A company spokeswoman said: “APC Overnight is aware of an unrelated road traffic accident involving one of its vehicles, on the A49 near Shrewsbury, and is working with the relevant authorities.”
