A step too far for Jávea mo­torists

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

Crash vic­tims in Jávea had to climb out of their car with a lad­der after they be­came trapped in­side the over­turned ve­hi­cle on Tues­day morn­ing.

Nei­ther the driver nor the pas­sen­ger was in­jured after the car hit a wall on Calle La Noguera, but as it was ly­ing on its side, they could not get out.

Po­lice had to drop a lad­der down through the driver's side win­dow – a tricky op­er­a­tion in which they had to take great care not to let it land on the peo­ple in­side.

Of­fi­cers then held up the car by hand so it did not tip onto its roof as the oc­cu­pants climbed out.

They were both shaken, but did not need med­i­cal treat­ment.
