AN Adelaide man was flown to hospital after the car he was driving and a semi-trailer collided on the Western Highway at Buangor yesterday.
The man’s Ford Falcon sedan was travelling west along the highway when it and the truck collided just after 11am.

The car driver, a man in his 50s, was partially trapped and was freed by State Emergency Service personnel.
Police blocked the highway and an air ambulance was called to land on a nearby paddock.
The man was flown to The Alfred hospital in Melbourne with non-life-threatening injuries.
The car’s passenger, a woman in her 50s, suffered shock, but was not hospitalised.
The truck driver was uninjured.
The highway was blocked for more than three hours following the crash.
