A 22-YEAR-OLD driver was rushed to hospital in a serious condition after a horror crash on the A483 near Wrexham.

A blue Audi was seen to leave the road on the northbound carriageway between junctions three and four at just before 7.40pm yesterday.

One eyewitness said the car swerved across the dual carriageway and hit a tree.

Two fire crews from Wrexham used cutting equipment to free the driver.

The motorist from the Gobowen area was taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital and was later transferred to the specialist University Hospital of North Staffordshire at Stoke where, it is understood, he underwent an operation last night.

The northbound carriageway of the busy A483 was closed for a while as the emergency services dealt with the wreckage.

That meant rush hour headaches for motorists, with some of them held up for up to an hour.

Nearby routes were also clogged with drivers trying to find alternative routes.

A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called at 7.38am today to reports of a single-vehicle road traffic collision on the A483, near Rhos.

“Crews in two emergency ambulances attended and a man in his 20s with serious injuries was taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital.”

One eyewitness said: “There were no other vehicles involved. The driver went across from the outside lane and across into a tree. The engine was ripped out of the car and landed near the base of a tree. It was red hot. The car had spun and fell on to its side.”

l THE A483 was closed for two hours on Monday after a man fell to his death off a bridge near Halton, Chirk.

 The man has not yet been named.
