A man had to be cut from the mangled wreckage of a car after a crash at a notorious Leighton Buzzard accident blackspot this afternoon.

The two-car collision happened at the junction of Shenley Hill Road and Vandyke Road near the town’s Tidy Tip.

The air ambulance, two ambulances, two fire engines and a rescue support unit were at the scene within minutes.

An East of England Ambulance Service Trust spokesperson said: “There were three patients. One man was uninjured, a woman was taken to Milton Keynes Hospital with non life-threatening chest injuries and a third man had to be released from a car.”

The crash scene, known locally as Shenley Hill crossroads, has been the scene of many serious accidents over the years.

In 2004, motorcycle instructor Richard Amos, 39, was killed at the junction as he took a lesson .

He was riding a Honda 1100 when his bike was in collision with a Peugeot 106.
