Man trapped after early morning crash

TRAFFIC was brought to a standstill this morning (Tues) after a car crash in Easton-in-Gordano left one man trapped.

Fire crews from Avonmouth and Pill were called to cut the man, believed to be in his 40s, from his Volkswagen Polo shortly after 5.15am.

He collided with a Vauxhall Cavalier in Martcombe Road, Easton-in Gordano, about 100yards from the Portbury roundabout at junction 19 of the M5.

A spokesman for Avon Fire and Rescue said once firefighters removed the roof, the man was placed on a spinal board and taken to hospital. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

The Vauxhall driver in his 50s was able to free himself unaided and was unhurt.
