A CAR was in collision with a line of parked vehicles near March railway station where county councillors have been looking for ways to fix the problem of commuter parking.
A red Ford Ka was in collision with a green Nissan Primera which then shunted into a blue MG ZR near the railway crossing in Elm Road at 12.20 on Friday.
Damage was caused to the three cars in the incident which also caused slight damage to the bus stop outside the BRAZA social club and a council waste bin.
Two people suffered minor injuries.
Earlier this year the road was put under the spotlight as part of the transport strategy for March when the county council agreed the issue needed addressing.
In January, county councillor Steve Count said the parking was “unsafe, undesirable and unacceptable” because the road became blocked when two large vehicles tried to pass and it sometimes left cars “trapped” on the railway line.
Cllr Count posted his views on community website Shape Your Place appealing for residents to come forward with ideas to solve the problem
