THE B4042 road was blocked in four directions after a van and a car collided at Callow Hill crossroads today. 

Paramedics treated the driver of the car at the scene and the accident blackspot near Brinkworth was closed for around two hours until 1.20pm, when the vehicles were recovered.

The crossroads has seen several crashes in recent years and residents have called for improvements, including a reduction in the 50mph speed limit.

Wiltshire Council has repainted white lines and resurfaced sections of the route.
