Macclesfield Express - - BOSLEY TRAGEDY -

A MAN had to be cut free af­ter a van crashed into a tree and wall.

The ca­su­alty was the pas­sen­ger in a Volk­swa­gen van which crashed on Rainow Road, Rainow, at 4am on Sun­day.

Po­lice, fire and am­bu­lance ser­vices all at­tended the ac­ci­dent.

Fire­fight­ers spent more than an hour on a ‘com­plex ex­trac­tion’, cut­ting the ca­su­alty free us­ing spread­ers, rams and a saw.

Paramedics took the in­jured man to Wythen­shawe Hos­pi­tal at 5.30am.

A spokesman for Cheshire Po­lice said: “At ap­prox­i­mately 4am on Sun­day, Au­gust 23, Cheshire Po­lice were called to re­ports of a one-ve­hi­cle col­li­sion in Rainow, near Mac­cles­field.

“Of­fi­cers at­tended the scene and found that a VW van had col­lided with a tree and a dry­s­tone wall on Rainow Road.

“A man, who was a pas­sen­ger in the ve­hi­cle, was in­jured as a re­sult of the col­li­sion.

“He is cur­rently be­ing treated at Wythen­shawe Hos­pi­tal where his in­juries are de­scribed as non-life threat­en­ing.”

A 33-year-old man, was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of driv­ing whilst above the al­co­hol limit. He is cur­rently on po­lice bail pend­ing fur­ther en­quiries.
