A CAR crashed into a tree near the Rat Trap roundabout in Stratton this morning.

A witness to the Highworth Road incident told the Adver that the driver was taken to hospital.

A spokesman for Wiltshire Police said: "We got the call at 8.15am today to a road traffic collision where a BMW had hit a tree.

"Ambulance was also called.  Male driver sustained minor injuries."

This crash comes mere days after 66-year-old great-grandfather and motorcyclist Jack Robson died in a collision with a car on the same road.
