A 30-YEAR-OLD man became trapped when the truck he had been driving overturned in Clanfield last night. 

South Central Ambulance Service spokesman David Gallagher said the driver had been left with "severe leg injuries" after the incident in Bampton Road.

Paramedics treated the man in a driveway before taking him to the John Radcliffe Hospital

Emergency services were called shortly after 5pm and three fire engines, an ambulance and two police cars were sent. The air ambulance was also called, but did not attend. 

The fire service said crews stabilised the vehicle and administered first aid to the man as he was trapped under its roll bar.

Firefighters then worked with the other emergency services to raise the vehicle using hydraulic lifting equipment as medical care was being given to the man.

A resident in the local pub said the emergency services had been at the scene for several hours.

Another man added: "There has been some building work going on around the back of there.

"I think someone was building a swimming pool. There's definitely been some construction going on."

Dumper trucks had been seen going in and out of the site for the past four to five days, the Oxford Mail understands.

A neighbour said: "I don't really know what's been going on. It's a bit of a shock. I just saw all the blue lights outside."
