MOTORISTS are being urged to find alternative routes after two HGVs collided on the A50 this morning.

Staffordshire Police said the collision occurred on the eastbound carriageway of the A50 at Blythe Bridge, just after the roundabout with the A521, at 6.50am.

One driver has been taken to hospital with potentially serious injuries and specialist collision investigators are at the scene investigating the incident.

Officers said both vehicles were tankers, one carrying sand and the second was a fuel tanker, however there was no leak from the fuel tanker and the scene has been made safe while investigation and recovery work takes place.

Police have closed the road while they deal with the incident and drivers are asked to find alternative routes as specialist heavy recovery is required to reopen the road once the investigation is completed.

Staffordshire Police said it is working to reopen the road as soon as possible once the detailed investigation has been completed.
