A man has been taken to hospital after the car he was travelling in overturned in West Devon.

Police say a Silver Honda saloon car came to rest on its roof just north of the Pitts Cleave Industrial estate on the A386 in Tavistock at 11.15am today.

The driver was said to be 'walking wounded' but his injuries are not thought to be life threatening or life changing.

Paramedics attended and treated the man who was taken to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth to have a superficial head wound treated.

Firefighters from Tavistock arrived to clear up a fuel spillage caused by the crash.

The driver did not allegedly have permission to drive the vehicle, although it was not reported stolen, say police.

A police spokesman said: "The driver of the car has been street bailed and is due to attend a police station soon."

No other vehicles were involved.
