Youth, 17, hurt in crash
Thursday, 10 May 2012
A TEENAGE boy suffered serious injuries after his car crashed into a tree.
The Redmarley youth, 17, was driving towards Ledbury in his blue Citroen Saxo when it collided with a tree near Dymock.
He was air-lifted to Frenchay hospital in Bristol with life-threatening injuries, where he remains in a serious condition.
The crash happened at around 10.35am on Sunday on the B4216 Ledbury Road.
Witness Phil Hurrell said: “I heard a car whizzing past and saw it lose control on the corner and it smashed into a tree.
“The driver’s side door of the car hit the tree so the young man is lucky to be alive.
“There was a fatal crash here some years ago and another crash more recently.
“There’s a 60mph limit here and I think this is a road that just needs calming down.”
The road was closed for more than three hours whilst an investigation was carried out.
If you have any information that could help the enquiry you should call Gloucestershire Police on
101 quoting incident 155 of May 6.
