Driver suffers suspected heart attack

A MAN was taken to hospital after suffering a suspected heart attack at the wheel and crashing his car in Nailsea.

At about 10.30am on Saturday a silver Chevrolet car smashed into a wall in Bucklands Grove, off Bucklands Batch.

Police officers and paramedics attended the scene and the road was closed off until about 2pm. One fire crew from Nailsea and two crews from Temple Fire Station also attended and helped paramedics get the driver and female passenger out of the car.

They were both then taken to the Bristol Royal Infirmary.
