Woman trapped in car smash

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

A WOMAN had to be cut from a car af­ter it was in­volved in an ac­ci­dent on the Cat and Fid­dle.

The car, which had been trav­el­ling along Bux­ton New Road, left the road and ended up in a field close to the Cat and Fid­dle pub.

Fire­fight­ers had to re­move the roof of the car to res­cue a woman, as­sisted by the am­bu­lance ser­vice’s Haz­ard Area Re­sponse Team (HART).

She was car­ried out on a long board and treated by paramedics for back and neck pain. The woman was then taken to Wythen­shawe Hos­pi­tal as a ma­jor trauma case where she is be­ing treated for a ‘se­ri­ous in­jury’.

A sec­ond ca­su­alty was also treated at the scene but was not ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal. No other ve­hi­cles were in­volved in the in­ci­dent at around 7.30pm on Tues­day, Novem­ber 15.

A spokesman for Cheshire Fire and Res­cue said two fire en­gines at­tended the scene. Po­lice were also in at­ten­dance.

They said: “One car was in­volved in a road traf­fic col­li­sion, leav­ing a woman trapped in the ve­hi­cle. Paramedics treated one ca­su­alty while fire­fight­ers sta­bilised the car and used hy­draulic cut­ting equip­ment to re­move the roof of the car to re­lease, on a long board, the sec­ond ca­su­alty.

“The car had left the road and was in a field close to the Cat and Fid­dle pub.”
