Man injured after A13 crash
A man was “lucky” after his car collided with a barrier last night (Monday).
The man’s Ford Escort Estate was in a collision with the central barrier of the A13 near the Wennington junction at about 10.30pm.
The car was on its side when firefighters attended and the central barrier had sliced through the middle of the car.
Firefighters cut the man, in his 30s, out of the car, before he was taken to hospital with a hip injury.
Hornchurch crew manager Peter Richards said: “He was very lucky because the barrier went through the middle of the car and where the driver would normally sit.”
