POLICE have revealed that a driver had to be taken to hospital after the car he was driving ended up on its roof following it crashing into two vehicles.

The 40-year-old from Burton was taken to Burton’s Queen’s Hospital following the incident at just after 11pm on Tuesday in Gough Side, Burton.

Staffordshire Police confirmed that after treatment he was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving but was later released after officers decided to take no further action.
