Man hospitalised following A339 collision in Newbury this morning (Monday)
Driver sustained serious leg injuries
A man was taken to hospital with serious injuries following a road traffic collision on the A339 this morning (Monday).
Newbury firefighters had to use a hydraulic rescue ram to free the driver of the car whose legs had become trapped after he collided with the Burger King roundabout at 4am.
Crew manager Martyn Doolin said that firefighters had to take the front of the Mazda MX05 convertible off of the mans legs, both of which were severely injured.
The 49-year-old driver was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital with leg and chest injuries.
The road was partially closed while the firefighters freed the driver and they left the scene after 40 minutes.
