A collision between a van and a car has happened on the A39 near Penryn this afternoon on the same road where a woman pedestrian was killed on Friday.

Details are sketchy at the moment but police report that they were called to reports of a road traffic collision on the A39 near to the Treliever roundabout at around 3.40pm.

Locally there are reports that one person was injured but police say the extent of any injuries are not yet clear.

A police spokesperson told the Packet: "The extent of any injuries is not clear but we were called to reports of a road traffic collision involving a van and a car on the A39 at Treliever at around 3.40pm today, Wednesday 29 June."

The accident follows the death of local woman 33-year-old Ekaterina Schofield following a collision with a van on Friday, June 24.

Local reports say the accident has happened in the same place at the crossing between the Mabe housing estate and Tremough campus, but these have not been confirmed.

It is the third crash on that road in a week, with another collision between a motorbike and two cars last Tuesday. 

The crossing is the subject of a petition to make the crossing safer as there are no warning signs for drivers to indicate that the pedestrians are crossing.

When the Packet visited the site this earlier afternoon, the crossing was still being heavily used by pedestrians and cyclists, although one resident dog owner said she had stopped using it since the accident. This video shows a cyclist crossing the road this afternoon.

She said mums with young children regularly use the crossing and students who rent properties on the estate.

Students at the university regularly park their cars all along Kingston Way on the estate and cross into the campus. 

The number of floral tributes place for Ekaterina on the traffic island on the estate had increased today.

More on the latest crash as we get it.
