Man in­jured as car flips in col­li­sion

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS -

A MAN was taken to hos­pi­tal af­ter a car flipped onto its side on a res­i­den­tial street in Llanelli.

The sin­gle-ve­hi­cle crash hap­pened at around 2am on Sun­day in Fron­deg Ter­race, a short dis­tance from the town cen­tre.

Pic­tures from the scene show the car on its side with its roof cut open af­ter fire­fight­ers used spe­cial­ist equip­ment to free the driver, who was trapped in­side.

Po­lice of­fi­cers and am­bu­lance per­son­nel were also in at­ten­dance and the road was closed for al­most two hours. The car – a Citroen C2 – is un­der­stood to have crashed into a parked ve­hi­cle, caus­ing it to flip.

A spokesman for Mid and West Wales Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice said: “We were called to a road traf­fic ac­ci­dent in Fron­deg Ter­race in Llanelli at 2.06am on Sun­day morn­ing.

“One ca­su­alty was phys­i­cally trapped and had to be re­leased by fire­fight­ers who used hy­draulic cut­ting equip­ment, small gear, spreaders and a saw.

“Crews made the area safe and left the scene shortly be­fore 3am.”

The man trapped in­side the car was taken to hos­pi­tal. The ex­tent of his in­juries is not known but they are not thought to be life threat­en­ing.
