Woman released following RTC in Shucknall

The collision took place at around 11.15am and involved a car and a 4 x 4 vehicle.


Station Commander Neil Pigott from Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service explained: "Two fire engines from Hereford attended, and crews arrived to find the 4 x 4 on its side and a female passenger trapped inside it. They used cutting equipment to remove the roof from the car and release the woman inside, so that she could receive the medical attention she needed."

He described this as a 'difficult operation', explaining that it took nearly an hour for crews to extricate the woman, with the stop message given just after 12.30pm.

Following her release, the female passenger was conveyed to hospital by land ambulance while fire crews made safe the vehicles involved.
