POLICE are investigating after a two-car smash which saw one of the vehicles left stuck on a roundabout.

Officers were called to the incident in Easington Road, Hartlepool at around 7pm last night.

A black Fiat Stilo, believed to be carrying three passengers, and a black Peugeot 206, were involved in the accident.

Nobody was seriously hurt in the crash, but one of the men involved is believed to have gone to the University Hospital of Hartlepool suffering with minor head injuries.

Police are now appealing for witnesses to find out exactly what happened in the lead-up to the accident.

When they arrived, the Fiat Stilo had gone across the roundabout and damaged some electrical equipment containing telephone cables.

“Two vehicles had been involved in a road traffic accident.

“It is thought only one of the people involved suffered minor injuries and went to the University Hospital of Hartlepool.

“Inquiries are ongoing.”
