Man cut free after RTC

Church Road, Frampton Cotterell

A man has been rescued by firefighters after his van was involved in a road traffic collision and ended up on its side.

When crews arrived they found a man in his 40s trapped.

Crews quickly stabilised the vehicle and then used hydraulic cutting equipment to remove the windscreen and part of the roof of the van to enable paramedics to access the casualty.

Working alongside paramedics the man was assisted on to a spinal board and taken to hospital. His injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

The road was closed while the incident was ongoing.
