Road collision outside The Plough, Taunton
A CAR driver suffered injuries after his vehicle smashed into a road sign outside The Plough in Station Road, Taunton, this afternoon (January 9).
The incident, involving a silver Citreon Xsara, happened at 2pm and left a road sign at the junction with Priory Bridge Road damaged.
A lampost was knocked into Gemma Louise hair salon and joint owner Gemma Southby said she thought a lorry had hit her hairdressers.
She told the County Gazette: "There was a massive bang - I just hope there is not too much damage."
An ambulance was called to the scene and officials have been called to remove oil which was spilt on the road.
The road remains open to traffic.
