POLICE are appealing for witnesses of the head on collision between two lorries in Cwmaman last Thursday.
Firemen had to release the drivers of both vehicles after the accident on the road between Gwaun Cae Gurwen and Garnant.
Mr. Martin Jones (23) of Heol-y-Garn, Garnswllt, had to be cut from his Dodge flatback lorry by Ammanford firemen using compressed air cutting equipment.
Mr. Jones, who sustained head injuries and his passenger, Mr. Selwyn Raymond Millar, of Brynhafod, Tycroes, suffering form shock were discharged after treatment at Morriston Hospital.
The driver of the refrigerated Ford Lorry involved in the accident, Mr. David Graham Nenar (41) of Pwll Street, Llandore, was aided from his vehicle by firemen.
Ammanford station officer Mr. David Grove, who attended the scene said: “The steering wheel had been forced into his abdomen and he was complaining of pains in his stomach.”
Mr. Nenar was taken by ambulance to Morriston Hospital where he was detained with abdominal injuries. He was said to be “comfortable” on Tuesday.
A third vehicle was involved in the incident. A ford Escort driven by Detective Inspector Gareth Owen Jones of the Serious Crimes Squad, was travelling up the hill behind the Dodge lorry.
A police spokesman said that the detective took avoiding action and skidded into a ditch. He was unhurt.
