Double smash puts young men in hospital

TWO young men were hospitalised after car smashes in Stevenage and Letchworth last night (Monday) and this morning.

Paramedics raced to Bude Crescent in Stevenage after reports of a Vauxhall Corsa hitting a concrete fence post shortly after 8pm.

The 18-year-old driver was treated at the roadside for minor injuries to his head and chest before being taken to Lister Hospital.

This morning a 29-year-old cyclist from Letchworth was taken to Lister with hand and face injuries after a collision with a white transit van at the junction of Broadway and Hitchin Road in Letchworth at around 5.45am. An East of England Ambulance spokesman said his injuries were minor.
