A MAN has been arrested and two people taken to hospital following a serious road traffic collision.

The incident happened in Cefn Road, Wrexham, on last night (Thursday) and led to a road closure being in place for hours.

Today a spokesman for North Wales Police said: “A 26-year-old man is currently in custody having been arrested on suspicion of aggravated unauthorised taking of a motor vehicle and dangerous driving.

“Officers were alerted at 9.09pm to the collision.

“Two passengers sustained injuries and were taken to hospital. A white Ford Transit is believed to have left the road and overturned.

“The injuries sustained although described as serious are not believed to be life threatening.

“The road was closed for a time and re-opened just after 1.15am on Friday.”

A spokesman for the Welsh Ambulance Service said: “We received a call at 9.15pm to reports of a vehicle on its roof on Cefn Road.

“Crews in two emergency ambulances and a rapid response vehicle attended the scene.

“A man in his 30s and a teenage girl were taken to the Maelor Hospital. Their injuries were not believed to be life threatening.”

A spokesman for North Wales Fire Service said firefighters from Wrexham were sent to the scene.

He added: “They assisted with the release of occupants in a vehicle which had overturned. There was no need to use cutting equipment.”

On Twitter PCSO Charlotte Hodges wrote: “Now returned from the area of the Cefn Road traffic collision. Good team work and response between North Wales Police, North Wales Fire Service and Welsh Ambulance Service.”

Also on Twitter, North Wales Fire Service Wrexham Fire Green wrote: “A good example of all the services working well together, as always.”
