Man seriously injured after being caught between tow truck, car

A man has been seriously injured after being caught between a tow truck and a car.

Emergency services were called to the incident on Avonhead Rd, just north of Maidstone Rd, about 4.30pm on Monday. 

A police spokeswoman said initial reports suggested the man was caught between a vehicle, and the truck towing the vehicle. 

A St John spokesman said the man was taken to Christchurch Hospital with serious injuries. 

One side of the road was closed and it was under stop/go traffic control.   

A Christchurch Transport Operations Centre spokesman said motorists should expect delays until the road was cleared.

Since the news report does not state anyone else was involved we can only assume this was the Tow Operator.
