Residents have called for traffic lights to be installed at a Chesterfield roundabout following a crash.

Emergency services were called to the collision at Whittington Moor roundabout at about 6pm on Saturday.

A Derbyshire fire service spokesman said: “One vehicle had gone into the central reservation.

“Firefighters from Chesterfield attended and made the scene safe.

“The ambulance service arrived and treated a casualty while police were there to assist with traffic control.”

Crews left the scene at about 6.35pm.

Commenting on the Derbyshire Times’ Facebook page, Rebecca Westwood said: “It was my son’s friend from work.

“He’d only just left work.

“The car went out of control and spun three times.

“Poor young man. Thank God he’s OK – but it’s written off his new car.”
