Crash on ‘boy racer’ road in Welwyn Garden City

A CRASH in a WGC street where ‘boy racer’ drivers were blamed for killing three cats has convinced a resident to start a petition to get speed humps installed.

The head-on collision, on September 23, happened right outside resident Karen Hillier’s home in Mill Green Road. Last week the WHT told how Karen and her son Shane McSweeney had lost another cat on the road, which she says needs traffic calming measures.

On witnessing the latest accident she got on to the phone to the WHT and said: “I just looked out of the window and saw a van and a car.

“It’s a head on smash. Nothing has been damaged but the road is blocked.”

She added: “I’m going to start a petition now.”

Police were called at around 11.30am as the road was left partially-blocked.
