A MAN was taken to hospital after being cut from a car that had crashed into a wall and telegraph pole.

Firefighters cut the roof off the BMW to free the man after the crash that took place at around 7.30am this morning on Worcester Road at the junction of Copcut, opposite the Copcut Elm pub.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said the man did not suffer major injuries, but he was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

A nearby resident has said the car went into a wall running on the left hand side of the A38 at the junction, where the road merges into one heading south, before coming to a rest next to the telegraph pole.

Firefighters from Worcester and Droitwich used cutting gear and small tools to release the man from the vehicle, before the ambulance service treated them and he was helped into the ambulance.

Pictures from the scene showed the debris from the crash spread across the road.

A Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said emergency services left the scene and the incident was closed at 10.06am.
