Man injured following RTC

Marksbury Road, Bedminster.

A man suffered injuries to his face, chest and legs after a car he was travelling in collided with a street light and landed in a wall.

Two females, thought to be the driver and a rear passenger, managed to escape from the vehicle before fire and ambulance crews arrived on the scene.

Firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to remove the passenger door of the vehicle, enabling paramedics to treat the casualty. He was then carried out of the car on a spinal board.

The three were taken to hospital by ambulance.
