TWO people have been seriously injured and one person was trapped after a crash on a major road.

The collision happened on Addingham Wharfedale Road (A65), near the village of Addingham in the Bradford district, in the early hours of this morning.

A spokesperson for West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service (WYFRS) said they were called at around 12.30am to the crash, which involved two vehicles.

Crews from fire stations in Keighley, Silsden and Ilkley rushed to the scene.

They found that a small van and a car had collided.

There were five casualties in total and four had managed to escape the vehicles, when firefighters arrived.

But one person, who had suffered serious injuries, was still trapped.

The crews had to get them out by cutting the top of the vehicle off, using hydraulic tools.

The trapped individual was then rushed to hospital by ambulance, as was one of the other casualties who also suffered serious injuries.

Fire crews were there for about an hour and there was a large police presence at the scene, with the road shut for a period of time.

The Telegraph & Argus has contacted both West Yorkshire Police and Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) for further details.
