Motorists in hospital after accident


Two men were taken to hospital last night after a serious accident on the main road between Douglas and Peel.

It happened around 9.50pm close to Greeba Castle and involved two cars, a Renault Laguna being driven by a 32-year-old from Douglas and a Toyota Celica being driven by a 19-year-old from Peel.

Both suffered injures described as 'non-life threatening'.

The Peel man had to be cut out of his car by the emergency services.

The road was closed for almost five hours while police, fire crews and Department of Transport workers dealt with the incident.

The force of the collision caused the engine of the Laguna to fly out of it and smash through the garage door of a house nearby.

Anyone with information about the accident is asked to contact Peel police on 842208.
