UPDATE: Road closed yesterday after car crashes into pole on Cirencester Road near South Cerney and Siddington
A POLICE road block was in place yesterday evening (Monday, October 7) on Cirencester Road after a vehicle crashed into a telegraph pole.
A road block was in place just before the turn off towards Siddington from 6.30pm to just after 10pm as paramedics and BT engineers attended the scene.
The pole had fallen over the car and onto the road, meaning no vehicles could get through.
The driver of the vehicle suffered minor but not life-threatening injuries and was taken to Great Western Hospital in Swindon.
Gloucestershire Highways also attended the scene to clean up spilt oil on the road.
BT engineers have since removed the telegraph pole.
