One rescued after car overturns

Wells Road, Knowle, Bristol

One person was rescued from a car on its roof following a collision with a bus.

Three fire engines from Hicks Gate and Temple fire stations were called to the incident where they found a Vauxhall Corsa had overturned.

It’s thought six people had been in the car at the time of the collision, although five had managed to free themselves from the vehicle before firefighters arrived.

Firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to remove the doors of the car before rescuing the man, who was aged in his 20s, using a spinal board. He was then taken to hospital with serious injuries.
