Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service is warning drivers to take extra care when travelling through roadworks after a crash on the M40.
Emergency services were called to the motorway between junctions 6 and 7 yesterday afternoon where people were believed to be trapped in the wreckage.
A car had left the motorway and ended up on its side down the embankment and stuck in the hedgerow.
The driver and the passenger were freed safely.
“I would like to thank all services who helped at this incident including the Army who had stopped when passing the incident and provided support to the casualties until our arrival. Due to the position of the car and the fact it was on its side down the embankment we had to initially stabilise the vehicle to prevent further movement and then create access by use hydraulic equipment to remove the doors and centre post from the side of the car.
"The driver and passenger were then able to be released and subsequently taken to hospital for checks, however the incident could have resulted in even more damage had the vehicle hit others and of course the injuries could have been a lot worse had they not been wearing their seat belts”
"There have been a number of recent accidents in the current temporary road works in place on this section of the M40 and I would urge drivers to stay alert, reduce their speed on approach and take extra care by following the 2 second rule in an attempt to maintain a suitable gap between you and vehicle in front, thus helping prevent possible further collisions”
