THREE people were taken to hospital after a car crashed into a railway bridge.

Police were called to the scene of the crash on Shotton Lane in Ewloe, Deeside, at 9.45pm on Monday.

Fire crews used cutting equipment to release one of the four occupants of the black Renault Megane.

A man and two women were taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment.

A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called at 9.41pm to reports of a single-vehicle road traffic collision on Shotton Lane, Deeside.

“A man in his 20s with back pain, a woman in her 20s with neck pain and a woman in her 20s with a head injury were taken to the Countess of Chester Hospital.

“A paramedic in a rapid response car and three emergency ambulances attended.”

A North Wales Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said North Wales Police requested the help of the fire service and two crews from Deeside crews attended.

“One casualty was released by fire crews and another casualty released themselves,” the spokesman said.

“Both were taken to hospital with slight injuries.”

A nearby resident, who asked not to be named, said she was alerted to the incident by the large number of emergency vehicles.

She said the road, which has a single carriageway, was wet and partly flooded which made it more dangerous at night.

“There’s a slight curve before the bend and then a cattle grid,” she said.

l A PENSIONER was rushed to hospital with ‘life-threatening injuries’ after a car crash.

The car hit a wall on country road in Nercwys, near Mold, shortly before 5pm last night.

The rush-hour collision happened shortly after 5pm on Newbridge Road, Wrexham.

A 21-year-old man, a 41-year-old woman and another male whose age was not specified, were all taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital with ‘non-life threatening injuries’.

l TWO men were taken to hospital following a two-car smash near Wrexham last night.

The police and ambulance services turned out to the scene on the A483 Wrexham bypass between B5445 Wrexham Road (Belgrave roundabout) and Junction 7 B5102 Llay Road (Rossett) shortly before 8pm.

A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesman said a man in his 30s, along with an elderly man, were taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital with “slight injuries”, adding it was “mainly as a precaution”.

l  TWO fire crews from Wrexham turned out to a two car crash in Acton last night.
