Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

An in­ves­ti­ga­tion is un­der­way af­ter a man was rushed to hos­pi­tal af­ter crash­ing a taxi which was re­ported as stolen from a Wishaw street.

Po­lice re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that the ve­hi­cle had been taken from Cam­bus­nethan Street in the early hours of Thurs­day morn­ing. They traced the car to the Bell­side round­about near Cle­land.

How­ever, the driver then sped off, crash­ing into a bar­rier on the dual car­riage­way and over­turn­ing.

A po­lice spokesper­son said the man was rushed to hos­pi­tal in the af­ter­math of the crash. His con­di­tion is now de­scribed as sta­ble.

The spokesper­son added: “An in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the cir­cum­stances is now un­der­way and the mat­ter has been re­ferred to the Po­lice In­ves­ti­ga­tions & Review Com­mis­sioner.”
