Woman trapped in car smash
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.”
