A young man was rushed to hospital after an horrific road smash which wiped out a telegraph pole and garden wall.

The black saloon was driving along Springfield Road, Springfield, at around 4am on Sunday June 26 when it careered out of control and smashed into the wall and wooden pole bringing down telephone wires.

It has been reported locally that the smash also damaged a house and wrote off one of the residents’ cars.
