TWO men were taken to hospital following a two-car crash this morning.

It took fire crews two hours to free the 19-year-olds from their Volkswagen Golf, which had become impaled on pedestrian railings.

The crash happened at around 1.30am at the junction of Oak Lane and St Mary's Road in Manningham, and involved the Golf and a Renault Megane.

Police and firefighters from Fairweather Green and Shipley were called to the incident, with the two men taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary.

Ahsan Ali, crew commander at Fairweather Green, said when they arrived the Golf was trapped between pedestrian railings and a wall.

He said: "The passengers from the Renault were out of the vehicle on arrival and uninjured, but the two people in the Golf were trapped with non-life threatening injuries.

"We had to stabilise the vehicle as it was impaled on the railings with its front up in the air, and to free them we had to remove the side and the roof of the car.

"We were there for about two hours in total, and police attended to carry out investigations into the cause of the accident."
