Two hospitalised following A38 junction crash
TWO people were taken to hospital after being trapped in their vehicle following a collision on a junction of the A38 on Saturday (August 31).
At 1.06pm, Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service were called to the accident on Taits Hill, near the Prince of Wales Hotel.
A Gloucestershire Police spokesman said a white Ford Transit van, registered to a Wotton-under-Edge address, and a black Skoda Fabia registered to a home in Berkeley had collided.
One fire engine from Dursley Fire Station and one specialist rescue pump from Stroud Fire Station attended and assisted with the release of an injured male and female from the Skoda.
Two ambulances and two rapid response vehicles were sent for and treated the two casualties which suffered upper-body injuries, and were eventually taken to Frenchay Hospital.
The fire crews made the vehicle safe by isolating the fuel supply. They remained at the scene for a total of one hour.
During the incident, police officers blocked off Taits Hill to aid recovery.
