Firecrews from Marley Park and Sunderland Central were called to the accident at around 10.30 this morning.

A firefighter from Marley Park said: "We had to cut the man free because he was wedged at one side. He couldn't get out of the driver's side and the other side had taken the impact of the accident. His injuries were superficial and he was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure."
