Teenagers taken to hospital after car crashes into wall in Winterbourne

THREE teenagers were taken to hospital after the car they were travelling in hit a wall in Winterbourne.

Police say the three occupants, who were all aged 18, were taken to hospital after a grey VW Polo collided with a wall on the B4058 Winterbourne Hill on Monday evening.

Two of them were released but the male driver was kept in hospital after suffering what officers described as serious injuries.

Police are appealing for witnesses, or anyone with dashcam footage, to come forward as they investigate the cause of the crash, which happened at about 7.50pm.

The road was closed for more than four-and-a-half hours, as emergency services attended to the casualties, recovered the vehicle and started an investigation.
A police spokesperson asked anyone who saw the car in the moments before the collision or had any other information or footage which could help the investigation to call 101, quoting incident reference number 5221 114 251.

The crash was the second serious incident on the B4058 between Winterbourne and Bristol in the space of a month.

Another driver, a man in his 40s, had to be cut free from his car and was seriously injured further down the road in Hambrook.

Police said the driver was still in hospital two weeks after the crash, which happened on Bristol Road at about 4.45pm on April 25 near the M4 flyover and involved two vehicles.

Avon Fire and Rescue Service said firefighters used hydraulic equipment to free the driverfrom vehicle before he was passed to paramedics.

The road was closed for more than four hours after the crash.

Anyone with information about the Hambrook crash should call 101 and quote the incident reference number 5221 088 983.
