A van burst into flames after crashing off the A419 this morning (March 27).

The van hit either a tree or road sign around 9:30 am, with all emergency services attending and fire service putting out the blaze.

The road was closed to southbound traffic between the B4019 and A361.

A spokesperson from Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service said:  "We were called to the A419 southbound at 9.31am this morning (27 March) after a van left the road and ended up on the verge, where it caught fire.

"Three crews attended, two from Stratton and one from Swindon, and two breathing apparatus wearers used one hose reel jet to extinguish the fire.

"The driver was out of the vehicle when we arrived and is in the care of the ambulance service.

"Two crews have now left the scene, with one appliance from Stratton remaining in support of scene safety."

A Wiltshire Police spokesperson said: “We were called just before 9.30am this morning following a single vehicle collision on the A419 southbound just before the Honda junction. 

The vehicle collided with a post but the driver is not believed to be seriously injured. 

A closure is currently in place and is likely to remain for approximately 90 minutes whilst the incident is dealt with.”
