Man air­lifted to hos­pi­tal af­ter Uxbridge crash

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE driver in a horror crash in Uxbridge might be left with life-chang­ing in­juries af­ter his car over­turned, leav­ing a crum­pled wreck­age.

He re­ceived the in­juries in a dra­matic crash on the Uxbridge Road junc­tion with Kingston Lane on Sun­day (Septem­ber 9).

The driver of the car, be­lieved to be aged in his 50s, was air­lifted to hos­pi­tal af­ter crash­ing into a piece of “street fur­ni­ture”, such as a bol­lard or lamp­post. No other ve­hi­cles or per­sons were in­volved.

Emer­gency ser­vices, in­clud­ing the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice, London Am­bu­lance Ser­vice, London Air Am­bu­lance and London Fire Brigade were called to the scene at around 2.45pm and the road was closed for some time, cre­at­ing traf­fic de­lays.

A Met Po­lice spokes­woman said the driver’s in­juries were maybe lifechang­ing but not life-threat­en­ing, af­ter he was thought to be in a “po­ten­tially crit­i­cal con­di­tion” fol­low­ing the crash. The man’s next of kin were in­formed.

She added that the af­fected roads were now re-opened.

A London Fire Ser­vice spokes­woman said: “One man was re­leased from the ve­hi­cle and was treated at the scene by London Am­bu­lance Ser­vice.

“The in­ci­dent was over for us at 3.25pm. We sent two fire en­gines and a fire res­cue unit to the scene.”
