On the brink: Crashed tractor dangles a wheel over 140ft drop

A TRACTOR driver was left teetering on the edge of a 140ft-high bridge after a three-vehicle pile-up.
He had a miracle escape after one of his front wheels smashed through a barrier on the side of the A5 bridge near Chirk, Wrexham.
The barriert took the impact and stopped him plunging over the edge.  The unnamed tractor driver was not seriously hurt, and was treated at the scene by paramedics.
The section of road - the Chirk bypass - was closed in both directions due to the crash, which also involved a Ford Fiesta and a Vauxhall Corsa.
North Wales Police were called shortly before 2pm yesterday (19 Jan), before the matter was passed to West Mercia Police.
A North Wales Police spokesman said that the drivers of the vehicles suffered minor injuries.
A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesman said a woman, a driver of one of the cars, was taken to hospital after the crash.
The spokesman said: “We were called at 1.52pm to a road traffic collision near Chirk.
“We responded with a rapid response vehicle and an emergency ambulance and a woman in her 30s was taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital.
“Her injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.”
A second person was taken to the Maelor by West Midlands Ambulance Service with minor injuries.
It is believed the tractor driver was treated at the scene.
The road closure caused significant disruption on the A5, A483 and surrounding routes yesterday.
A diversion was put in place via the B5070 through Chirk, which also suffered from congestion as a result of the diverted traffic.
Llangollen Fire Station staff tweeted at around 3.40pm that the tractor had wheels over the railing of the lofty bridge.
A North Wales Fire and Rescue spokesman said one person had been cut free from a vehicle after the crash.
