The Kirk Michael coast road between the Switchback and Douglas Road corner was closed earlier following a one-vehicle accident just north of the Devil’s Elbow.

Upon arrival, crews from the isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service discovered a BMW X5 on its roof with a man trapped within the vehicle.

They stabilised the vehicle before removing its side using hydraulic cutters and spreaders in order to create adequate space to remove the casualty.

The man was taken to Noble’s Hospital by a waiting ambulance and his condition is not known.

Crews made the vehicle safe before returning to their stations at approximately 3.45pm.
