Man in collision two days before 24th birthday

A 23-YEAR-OLD man was involved in a collision in Freiston last night (Wednesday) - two days before his 24th birthday.

A police spokesman said the incident took place at about 5.04pm on a bridge on Priory Road between an orange Vauxhall Meriva, driven by a 61-year-old Butterwick man and a blue Renault Lagoon van, driven by the 23-year-old from Wyberton.

Both cars were recovered and the drivers were sent to Pilgrim Hospital but sustained only minor injuries.

The bridge was also hit but no structural damage was caused.
