“Ambulance staff worked carefully with the fire service to cut them free, but one of the women had to be freed with the use of specialist equipment in the form of a Kendrick Extrication Device.

This device secures the upper body and allows the patient to be removed from the vehicle in an upright, seated position.

“The woman, who is believed to be in her 40s, was treated for chest injuries and back pain and had pain relief administered before being transported to the Alexandra Hospital."
