Two rescued from RTC

Gordon Road, Whitehall, Bristol

Two men have been rescued by firefighters after a road traffic collision involving two vehicles.

When crews arrived on the scene they found a pick up truck on its roof and a Renault Clio involved.

Both the driver and passenger of the pick up truck, a man in his 40s and a woman in her 30s, were already out of the vehicle and unhurt.

However, two men in the Clio were trapped.

Firefighters quickly stablised the vehicle and then used hydraulic cutting equipment to remove the roof of the car. Working alongside paramedics, the two men were assisted on to spinal boards and taken to hospital with suspected spinal injuries.
