A driver suffered minor injuries after his car overturned when crashing into a parked car in Mottram.

It happened at around 3pm on Wednesday afternoon (July 22). 

The crash was on Broadbottom Road, opposite Winslow Avenue. 

A silver Volkswagen Polo crashed into a parked white Mini, causing the Polo to flip on to its roof.  

The driver, a 58-year-old man, was treated for minor injuries by paramedics and it is understood he was then taken to Tameside Hospital. 

Eyewitnesses described a male driver being trapped in his vehicle and multiple emergency services at the scene.
