RUSH hour traffic came to a standstill on the A17 after a bus and a lorry collided.

Both vehicles were seriously damaged in Wednesday’s crash on the Peppermint junction in Holbeach where the A17 meets the A151 link road on Wednesday.

Emergency services were called at about 5.55pm and the road was reopened again by 6.40pm.

No passengers were on the bus, which belongs to Boston-based firm Brylaine.

The driver and passenger of the Spanish lorry (both 27) and the bus driver, a 40-year-old man from Spalding, escaped injury.
