Woman injures back in accident

Emergency services, including fire crews and paramedics, were called to the scene of a road traffic accident during rush hour after there were reports of an accident whereby a female driver was in a collision.

The accident happened at approximately 6pm and Police responded quickly to the site to secure the road whilst paramedics provided support to the woman trapped in the car. Fire crews used specialist machinery to free the woman before she was taken to hospital for further treatment.

A fire and rescue spokesman said: “This was a single vehicle collision and firefighters used specialist cutting equipment to remove the roof of the vehicle and rescue a casualty, who was taken to hospital by ambulance.”

An ambulance spokesman said: “Two rapid response vehicles and an ambulance crew were sent and treated a woman, believed to be in her 40s, for back pains.

“After receiving treatment at the scene she was then taken to …….. Hospital for further treatment in a stable condition.”

Police are appealing to witnesses to the accident to establish how the accident happened.
