A MAN was taken to hospital after his car collided with a tree on the A49 in Bunbury earlier today (Friday).

The accident closed the road for just under two hours at Ridley Junction on School Lane, Bunbury as firefighters battled to cut the man free from his vehicle at about 10.30am.

All three emergency services were in attendance and the road was reopened by midday.

The man’s injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
