Lucky escape for drivers in 2-tractor road collision

A road in Pembrokeshire in the UK was closed for over six hours on Tuesday, August 20, following a collision involving two tractors.

It is understood the two tractors were drawing silage when they collided at Llanychaer near Fishguard, Pembrokeshire.

It appears one tractor was pulling a trailer-load of silage when it collided with another tractor with an empty trailer.

The tractor pulling the trailer-load of grass crossed the roadside ditch and the trailer detached while the tractor appears to have tumbled a distance down the field.

Both tractors appear to have been ‘wrote-off’ as a result of the incident.

The rural crime team in Pembrokeshire took to Twitter to explain that members of the police attended the two-tractor collision at 4:45pm on Tuesday, August 20.

According to the Rural Crime Team, the drivers escaped the incident with “no serious injuries”.

The road remained closed until 11:00pm.
