A MILK float has been smashed up in a road traffic collision at Marston Farm in Broad Town, early this morning.

A black Renault Clio was being driven by a woman down Broadtown Road when she collided with the stationary milk float.

The float, a 4x4 vehicle, was parked at the farm when it was struck at speed by the Clio.

The Renault then ploughed through a fence and shed at the property as a result of the collision.

The female driver passed a breathalyser test and was taken to hospital with suspected minor injuries. No other people were involved.

The Renault was recovered from the scene, but the 4x4 is currently being dealt with by the owner, a resident at the farm.

A significant amount of debris was scattered across the road as a result of the collision, as well as oil, which is being cleaned up by Swindon Council this morning.

A spokesperson for Wiltshire Police said: “We were called just before 6.30am to a road traffic collision at Marston Farm near Broad Town.

“A Renault Clio collided with a stationery milk float and as a result went through a fence and then into a shed.

“The female driver of the Clio was taken to hospital with suspected minor injuries.”
