Town council renews action plea over "dangerous" road after crash leaves two people in hospital
Waltham Abbey Town Council is stepping up its calls for action on Crooked Mile after a two-car collision left two people needing hospital treatment.

A man and a woman were injured in the crash which closed the road on Tuesday evening (January 3).

The collision occurred close to the junction with Laundry Lane.

It is understood that a man was taken to Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow, with head and back injuries and a suspected leg injury while a woman, who had been trapped in a vehicle, was taken to hospital in a serious condition with undisclosed injuries.

The town council has repeatedly called for traffic calming measures along the road and, following a collision last November, agreed to raise the matter again with the local Highways Panel and Waltham Abbey county councillor Ricki Gadsby.

Waltham Abbey Town Council leader councillor Mrs Liz Webster said: "The town council is sorry to hear about this most recent accident and hope that those involved make a speedy recovery. We would also like to thank the emergency services for their work.

"The town council has been working hard communicating with Essex Highways over this stretch of road for some time now, stressing the dangers of the road and trying to persuade them to take some action to improve road safety. 

"We hope they will now take notice and do something about it."
