The incident happened at the Lodge Way junction on Harlestone Road

Northamptonshire Police said: “This was a silver Ford Fiesta and a white Mercedes van involved in a collision today at about 9.10am.

"No one received any injuries thankfully.”

Last year, at the same junction, Robbie Fitzpatrick died after colliding with a car while riding his motorcycle.

After Mr Fitzpatrick's death, Councillor Nigel Hinch, of the Duston East ward, said he would be looking at improvements to the junction.

Mr Hinch told Chronicle & Echo last year: "I have been made aware of issues relating to the junction which I will be discussing with the relevant council officers to look at what improvements can be made for the safety of all road users and pedestrians."

Since then however no changes have been made to the junction.
