A man suffered serious chest injuries after his car crashed into a wall in Pembroke yesterday.

The single-vehicle incident happened near C-Mart, Blackwatch Pass, shortly after 10am.

Police said they arrived at the scene to find the victim, believe to be a 49-year-old of Warwick, in the road, complaining of chest pains.

He was receiving treatment in the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital’s intensive care unit where his condition was described yesterday afternoon as critical but stable.

Traffic was diverted while investigators processed the scene, near the north gate of Government House, but the road was cleared by 1.15pm.

Inquiries continued and witnesses were asked to call police on 295-0011.
