Stretch of A52 Derby-bound closed following a collision

Posted on 12th January 2017

We are dealing with a collision and a broken down car on the A52 at Borrowash and are urging drivers to avoid the A52 if possible while we work to clear the scene.

We were called just before 6am to reports that a car had struck the central reservation.

The driver has been taken to hospital.

The A52 slip road at junction 25 of the M1 is closed, which is causing traffic problems.

While waiting in queuing traffic caused by the collision, a car broke down and is awaiting recovery.

We are working to investigate the cause of the collision and make sure the carriageway is clear and safe before we can re-open it.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. We appreciate it's rush hour and people need to go about their journeys but we have to be satisfied the carriageway is safe.

Witnesses to the collision should call us on 101 quoting incident 95 of today.
