Four fire crews rushed to a road accident involving a lorry and car fearing someone was trapped inside the wreckage.
When they arrived at the scene of the smash along the A421 this morning (Tuesday) they discovered that no-one was seriously hurt.
Police and ambulance were also called to the collision close to the Salford Road junction just after 9.30am.
A man, aged in his late 30s, was assessed at the scene by paramedics but he did not need any further treatment.
The road was cleared by 11.40am.
Last week, Bedfordshire Police issued road safety advice after a string of deaths on the county’s roads.
Two people died in one day in seperate incidents at Bromham and the A421 between the junctions for the A600 and A6.
Other fatal collisions occured in Toddington, Biggleswade and Dunstable.
Last week Insp Bod turner from the Beds, Cambs and Herts roads policing unit said: “It has been an incredibly tragic week on the county’s roads and out thoughts are very much with all of those involved in the many collisions.
“It’s vitally important that we all pay attention on the roads, regardless of whether we are driving, cycling or walking, and that we are all mindful of other road users.”
