TWO men were taken to Great Western Hospital following a collision on the A419 yesterday morning.

A Renault Megane broke down going northbound near the Highworth junction.

A Chevrolet car crashed into the central reservation trying to avoid the Megane.

A Volkswagen people carrier then collided with the Chevrolet.

Police and ambulance crews were called to the scene with one lane of the A419 being closed for two hours which caused significant delays and long tailbacks.

The two men travelling in the Chevrolet were suffering with minor chest and head injuries and taken by ambulance to the hospital to be treated.
