A man has suffered a number of injuries and was left trapped in his vehicle following a road traffic collision with a tree in Newport tonight.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Chester Road, just off the A41, shortly after 8.20pm and sent an ambulance, a rapid response paramedic and a doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a car that had been significantly damaged after colliding with a tree.

“The driver of the car, a man in his 20s, was trapped in the vehicle following the collision and had to be carefully cut free with the help of the fire service.

“He was treated by ambulance staff for suspected leg and pelvis fractures as well as abdominal injuries.

“The man, who remained conscious throughout, was given pain relief and immobilised with the use of a scoop stretcher and pelvic splint before being taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further treatment.

“There was nobody else involved in the incident.”
