Woman is hurt in three car col­li­sion

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

PO­LICE closed a Peter­bor­ough road to traf­fic for more than two hours yes­ter­day fol­low­ing a three­car crash.

A woman had to be cut free from one of the ve­hi­cles in­voved in the col­li­sion on the busy Oxney Road, be­tween Sains­bury’s su­per­mar­ket and the Oxney Road car­a­van site and op­po­site Lyvelly Gar­dens, in East­field at 11.10am.

The woman, whose iden­tity has not been re­leased, was taken to Peter­bor­ough District Hos­pi­tal. No one else was in­jured in the ac­ci­dent.

The ve­hi­cles in­volved were a Vaux­hall Corsa, a Volvo S40 and a Re­nault Clio. Fire crews from Dogsthorpe and Stan­ground were at the scene.

A spokes­woman for the fire ser­vice said: “Fire crews had to re­move the roof off the Corsa to re­lease a woman trapped in­side due to her in­juries,

“They used spe­cial­ist cut­ting equip­ment to cre­ate space for the woman to be re­leased from the ve­hi­cle safely and she was then taken to hos­pi­tal by am­bu­lance.

A po­lice spokesman said: “One per­son has been slightly in­jured in the ac­ci­dent. The road was opened at 12.20pm.”
