The accident happened shortly before 6am on Wednesday, January 10 on Tustin Way near to the Red Scar Business Park.

Ambulance crews requested back-up from fire services after the man reported he had back and neck pain.

Watch Manager Mark Woodward said: "We were called out by the ambulance service because there had been a crash involving a Ford transit van and a Peugeot 308.

"The car driver was complaining of back and neck pain so ambulance crews requested that the man was stretchered out of his car as a precaution.

"We used cutting equipment to remove the roof from the car to extract the man.

"The man was then conveyed to hospital by ambulance."

The road was blocked for a short time while the vehicles were recovered.

The man is not believed to have suffered life-threatening injuries.
