TWO men were taken to hospital after they were involved in a crash on the A130 near Chelmsford, Essex.

The ambulance service received a call to the roundabout close to BP garage at the Boreham interchange, at 3.36am today after it is believed a car spun into a lamp post and rolled over a number of times.

Crews from South Woodham Ferrers and Chelmsford, and a rapid response vehicle from Chelmsford attended the scene.

Paramedic Ian Burrell said: "The male front seat passenger, who was ejected from the car in the accident, was found to have a decreased level of consciousness, a head injury, suspected multiple fractures to his right arm and difficulty in breathing.
