A person has been arrested after three South Western Ambulance workers were injured in a car crash.

In the early hours of this morning (Sunday 25 April) a grey Audi S3 collided with a parked ambulance on Toronto Road, Southmead.

The crash happened at around 4.30am and the driver got out of the vehicle and fled the scene.

All three workers were taken to hospital for emergency treatment.
