Two people were taken to hospital after a crash in Burnham-On-Sea on Monday morning (August 1st) after a car collided with a wall.

Emergency services were called just after 7am to Berrow Road, which was temporarily closed while fire crews freed two people from a vehicle at the junction with Gore Road.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesperson confirmed: “Emergency services were called to Gore Road in Burnham-On-Sea at 7.19am following a single-vehicle collision.”

“A car had collided with a wall. Fire crews were needed to free the driver and passenger and the ambulance service were also in attendance.”

“They were taken to hospital. Crews from Burnham-On-Sea and Bridgwater attended the incident.”

The road re-opened around 9.30am and the vehicle was removed by a recovery service shortly after.
