The 37-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drink driving following a three-vehicle collision on the A494 in Llanferres. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

An ambulance was called however, nobody was injured. The man currently remains in police custody. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

He has since been released on police bail pending further test results. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
