9 injured on m4 near chippenham
« on: August 15, 2008, 12:51:18 pm »
Nine people were injured in a five-car pile up at the Chippenham exit of the M4 last night.

The accident happened between junctions 17 and 18 at around 9.40pm.

Firefighters from Yate and Chippenham attended as it was reported there were people trapped in the wreckage.

They used hydraulic cutting equipment to free those trapped, placing them on a spinal board to avoid causing any more injuries.

Two men were hospitalised and seven more people received treatment at the scene.

must be harder to deal with accidents in the dark

it only takes one second of distraction adn its mayhem on motorways isnt it? with more people injured usually
