Parkside Drive Crash

An incident in Parkside Drive last night took out a fence, a tree, and wrote off 2 cars.

It is known that a Volvo XC70 was driving in Parkside Drive and went straight over the T-junction with Windsor Drive, crashed into a metal lamp post and wooden fencing panel, and took out a tree. Substantial damage was caused to a Land Rover parked in a parking bay on the other side of the fence.

Passer-by, Ant Halligan said, "I saw all the blue lights when I was passing and I stopped to see if I could help. All the emergency services were on the scene with more turning up as I was there."

A Fire Service spokesman said this morning, "We got a call at 18:51. The first vehicle was on the scene at 18:58. In all 2 pumps from Dunstable, a pump from Luton, and a Fire Rescue vehicle from Dunstable attended. 1 male and 1 female were cut from a vehicle. The couple were handed on to paramedics."

Bedfordshire Police confirmed that they attended the scene following a call about 18:50 last night, and that an XC70 with two passengers was involved.

The East of England Ambulance Service Trust sent two ambulances, the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART), and a rapid response vehicle. An ambulance officer attended and treated two patients.
Both were taken to Luton and Dunstable Hospital for further care. The condition of the couple in the moving vehicle is not known.

Mr Ryan Tott, who was visiting a friend in Parkside Close said of his vehicle that was parked up, "The windscreen support of my Land Rover was smashed in, the car is a write-off, but that's not important. That's just metal. My thoughts are with the ones in the moving car."
