Police at the scene of the incident on Outland Road in Plymouth

A woman has been arrested after a pedestrian was allegedly struck by a vehicle in Plymouth.

Emergency services were called to the city-bound lanes of the A386 Outland Road, between Peverell Park Road and Lyndhurst Road, at 11:34am today.

A police spokesman said: "We are treating the incident as an assault using a vehicle and a woman from Plymouth has been arrested."

Paramedics arrived on the scene and found a man injured but conscious and talking.

Police say the man, who is local and aged in his 50s, was taken to Derriford Hospital with injuries which are not thought to be life threatening or life changing.

The incident caused traffic gridlock across the city with Plymouth Citybus reporting the disruption to its services on Twitter.

Tweets from @plymouthbus this afternoon read: "An RTC has closed Outland Road both ways. Traffic chaos across the city. Please bear with us - our staff are working hard to deliver service.

"Outland Road is likely to be closed for some time. We are trying to run services for you with parts of the City gridlocked."

One lane was later reopened and police said the road was fully reopened by around 3:15pm.

Police say a woman aged in her 40s has been arrested in connection with the incident and was being questioned at Charles Cross police station.

Anyone with information should call police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting log number 300 of Saturday, November 9.
