Man res­cued from his car

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Commended For Quick-thinking -

A man was taken to hos­pi­tal af­ter he was res­cued from his car by fire­fight­ers on Tues­day.

Crews freed the man from the ve­hi­cle that had ended up in a field in Ruckinge, near Ash­ford.

They used sta­bilis­ers to sup­port the car, which then al­lowed the male driver to climb out.

He was treated by paramedics at the scene and then taken to the Wil­liam Har­vey Hos­pi­tal.

A SECAmb spokesman said he was fully con­scious and was not thought to have suf­fered se­ri­ous in­jury. No one else was in­jured.
