King Edward Road reopens after driver cut from car

Vehicle came to rest against MER power line post

King Edward Road has reopened following a crash this afternoon.

The emergency services were called out just before 4pm after a car left the road and came to rest against a Manx Electric Railway power line post.

Fire crews had to isolate the power before using hydraulic cutting equipment to get the driver out of the vehicle.

The casualty received treatment from the ambulance service, but is thought to have received only minor injuries.

Crews remained at the scene for a short time to make the vehicle safe for recovery, before the road could be reopened to traffic.
