A call has been made for safety signs to be installed in a South Derbyshire village after yet another serious crash there.
Councillor Pat Murray said warning signs are needed on the A444 in Overseal as it is becoming more dangerous.
His call came after a driver, in his 40s, had to be rescued from his vehicle following a crash in Acresford Road in the village on September 3.
He was pulled from the wreckage of his car after it crashed into a lamppost. The injured man was taken to Burton's Queen’s Hospital, incredibly, with non-life threatening injuries despite the severity of the accident.
Midlands Air Ambulance's critical care team and firefighters from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service were called to the scene along with Derbyshire Police at 12.36am.
Shocking images of the aftermath of the crash were later shared on Twitter by Derby Roads Policing unit, which also attended.
It comes nine months after a fatal incident which happened further along the A444 in Burton Road in which 21-year-old Branston man Sam McNeil died after a crash involving a Vauxhall Corsa.
It is not known if speed played any part in either of the crashes.
At the time, Councillor Murray, who represents the village on South Derbyshire District Council, said he wanted to see safety signs warning drivers of the sharp bend installed and he has now renewed his call after the latest accident.
Councillor Murray also represents Overseal on Derbyshire County Council and has since contacted the council, which is responsible for highways, about the issue.
He said: "Once I was elected (in May) I contacted the county council to see if there was anything we can do to control the speed on the road.
"A few weeks ago in Acresford Road there was a 40mph speed sign that had broken and we asked the county council to replace that as some people didn’t realise it had been reduced to 40mph (from the national speed limit)."
