THE mangled remains of a car littered the road in Steeple Ashton after it collided with a tractor trailer on Monday evening.

Police and four fire crews were called to the A350 Ashton Road at Cold Harbour at around 7pm after a blue BMW crashed into the tractor.

The road was closed until 8.30pm.

The firefighters, made up of two units from Trowbridge and one apiece from Melksham and Westbury, helped extract the car from under the trailer using their vehicle winch.

Initially fire crews believed that the driver of the car was trapped but that turned out to not be the case and nobody is thought to have been seriously hurt.
