Crashed lorry cleared after hanging over underpass

A lorry was left hanging over the side of an underpass after crashing near the end of the school day.

The HGV drove through barriers and onto a footpath near the road in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, just yards away from Ysgol Llwyn Yr Eos primary school on Monday.

The vehicle crashed around 3.20pm and was left hanging over the underpass below for hours until it was taken away and the A4120 road was reopened around 10.30pm.

No injuries were reported due to the crash, and Dyfed-Powys Police said they were investigating.

The force’s Ceredigion road policing unit said in a tweet: “This school time RTC, HGV crashes though barriers onto footpath.

“Lucky no pushchairs or children using it.”
