Trapped driver hospitalised after Stevenage road sign crash
A MAN had to be cut free from his car after it collided with a road sign.
Emergency services were called to Gresley Way in Stevenage shortly after 8pm on Saturday after reports that a car had crashed at the junction with Fairlands Way.
Two fire crews from Stevenage attended the scene and used cutting equipment to free the driver from the vehicle.
He was taken to Lister Hospital in the town to be treated for back and neck injuries.
Fairlands Way and Gresley Way were temporarily closed while the car was recovered, following the crash near to the Stevenage Road turning for Walkern.
The East of England Ambulance Service spokesman Gary Sanderson, who attended the scene said: “Ambulance crews worked very closely with police and fire service personnel for over an hour to treat, stabilise and immobilise the casualty until he was removed from the rear of the car on a spinal board and was taken to the Lister Hospital for further care.”
