A man cut free from a crashed car by firefighters was today said to be stable in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

The 58-year-old man suffered leg and chest injuries in a two-car crash on South Road in Paget, near the junction with Happy Talk Lane, at about 2.40am yesterday.

He was rushed to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for treatment.

A police spokesman added: “The other driver involved, a 32-year-old man, was treated for his injuries, discharged and later arrested on suspicion of impaired driving.”

Police have appealed for witnesses.
