A man is in hospital after a serious incident in Carmarthenshire which saw a vehicle crash into two parked cars before hitting a telegraph pole.
The crash happened at around 7.45pm on Thursday night in the village of Pontantwn, five miles outside Carmarthen.
According to Dyfed-Powys Police, who were called to the scene along with fire crews from Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, two cars were involved in a crash before one of the vehicles continued on and hit two parked cars at the side of the road.

The car then hit a boundary wall and a utility pole which resulted in power cables falling to the ground. Western Power was also called to the scene and fire crews from Kidwelly and Pontyates were there until shortly before 10pm.
However, the B4309 between Pontantwn and Meinciau was closed for more than seven and a half hours in total due to the recovery of vehicles, police investigation work and to allow for the safe repair of damaged power cables.
The road eventually re-opened at around 3.30am on Friday.
One man has been taken to hospital with injuries sustained in the incident. The police did confirm that the man, aged 30, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving, but later de-arrested at hospital pending further enquiries.
Police have refused to comment on the extent of the man’s injuries, but they are not thought to be serious.
