Teresa Berry, who lives on Chepstow Road, tended to the man before the ambulance crew arrived to take him to hospital.

She said a taxi van collided with the man on the corner of Kensington Place to the road outside her house.

She said the accidents on the road happen frequently and that there was a collision just last week.

Kirsty Lewis, who also lives on Chepstow Road, said she heard the crash at about 9pm: “We were in bed and all we heard was a massive smash. It was like a brick going through a window.”
