Fire crews from Douglas and Peel stations dealt with a serious road accident in Marown this afternoon.

It took place near St Patrick’s Chair, Garth.

A car overturned and had come to rest on its roof in a river.

The single male occupant got out and scrambled to safety. He suffered minor injuries.

He then telephoned the emergency services and told them he had freed himself.

Douglas fire crews made safe the vehicle by the isolation of electrical systems, thus preventing any fires within the vehicle.
