A MAN was seriously injured after a horror crash on the outskirts of Wrexham.
The two-vehicle collision involving a lorry and a Land Rover Freelander took place on the A5156 Llan-y-Pwll Link Road near the Gresford roundabout shortly after 9.30am yesterday.
A 69-year-old man, who was in the Land Rover, suffered serious head injuries in the crash. He was taken to hospital along with a woman who was also in the Land Rover. She suffered minor injuries but remained in hospital yesterday afternoon.
The driver of the other vehicle was taken to hospital but was discharged.
The road was closed for several hours while emergency services tended to the crash, which flipped the Land Rover Freelander onto its roof.
A police spokesman said: “We are appealing to anyone who may have been on the Llan-y-Pwll link road at the time and who saw a green Land Rover Freelander, which was believed to be stationary at the time of the incident, to call the Roads Policing Unit on 101.”
Traffic bound for the industrial estate was diverted along Chester Road and onto Holt Road.
One witness told the Leader: “I saw three police cars, three ambulances and two fire engines. You could tell there had been a very serious incident.
“The traffic went right back down to the Gresford roundabout and even back onto the sliproad of the A483.”
A spokesman for the Welsh Ambulance Service said: “We were called at 9.36am to reports of a road traffic collision, and three casualties were conveyed to hospital. One man is in a serious condition.”
l Emergency services dealt with a second accident 20 minutes later.
Two people were taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital, one with a back injury, following a two-vehicle collision off the A483 near the B&Q roundabout.
