Two young men escaped with minor injuries after the car they were travelling in wrapped around a steel pole.

Emergency services were called to the scene on South Douglas Road in the early hours of Monday morning where it is believed that a Passat hit several poles before coming to a stop around one.

Cork City Fire Brigade attended the scene and the crew had to use hydraulic cutting equipment to free the two men from the car.

The men were brought to CUH and gardaí described their injuries as minor.

Gardaí in Anglesea Street have confirmed that they are investigating the single vehicle road traffic collision which occurred at about 2.15am on Monday.

A garda spokesman told the Cork Independent: “Two men were brought to CUH with what is believed to be minor injuries.”
