Two seriously hurt in A466 road crash near Chepstow

Four people have been injured, two seriously, after a road crash near Chepstow in Monmouthshire.

Two vehicles were involved in the collision on the A466 Wye Valley link road at 16:35 BST on Friday.

The M48 old Severn crossing was closed westbound for a time but there were tailbacks due to the A466 being closed between Newhouse and Chepstow.

Diversions were in place and motorists were advised to avoid the area while emergency services were at the scene.

The Welsh Ambulance Service sent three ambulances, an air ambulance, five rapid response vehicles as well as a doctor to the scene.

One patient was taken to the Royal Gwent Hospital and two were taken to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol.

Gwent Police asked for any witnesses to call 101 quoting log 393 06/09/13.
