A driver had to be cut free by the emergency services last night after a road smash at Bissom, near Penryn.

Firefighters were called to the two car crash at 8.28pm, with two engines from Falmouth and the rescue tender from Camborne in attendance.

The road was closed from the Falmouth side at Church Hill and Bohelland Road all the way up to the Flushing turn off.

A black Nissan Navara pickup truck registered to an address in Flushing and blue Renault Clio from Mylor were involved in the smash.

Helen Knight, from Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service, said: "On arrival crews found one person still trapped in one of the vehicles.

"Crash rescue equipment was used to release the casualty who was left in the care of the ambulance service."

A spokesman for the police said both drivers were taken to the Royal Cornwall Hospital at Treliske with minor injuries.
