Man cut out of car after collision at Newbury Racecourse

Fire crews had to cut a 19-year-old man free from his car after it collided with a lamp post outside the entrance to Newbury Racecourse this morning. 

Crew manager Paul Keenan said firefighters carried out a full roof removal of the Vauxhall Corsa before the man was taken to hospital.

His injuries are not believed to be serious.

Fire crews were called at 9.50am this morning. Two police cars and an ambulance were also at the scene.

    Bummer. Depending on the circumstances, could well be used to justify more loss of control training when learning to drive. An afternoon on a skid pan to understand how a car behaves when it loses grip would do a world of good.

    @NWNREADER The 3 bollards behind the 'convertible' photo. They have been placed around the base of the ex-lamppost. But how did he hit it? The road is curving to the left there. Glad he's OK and will learn an insurance £££ lesson, more importantly, no pedestrians were there.
