Overturned lorry causes tailbacks in Swindon

A lorry overturned on a slip road joining the M4 at Swindon in the early hours of Wednesday.

The driver was trapped in his cab on the A419 near junction 15 for over two hours after the crash, just before midnight.

The vehicle's side was overhanging the embankment, and the ambulance service's hazardous area response team was dispatched.

The driver was taken to hospital with a suspected broken shoulder.

A Great Western Ambulance Service spokesman said he also suffered lower leg injuries.

Diversions were put in place.
