Woman cut out of car after crash in Hadleigh
A WOMAN was cut out of her car after a crash in Hadleigh on Saturday.
The 24-year-old was driving a red Hyundai which hit a van which was parked in Falbro Crescent just before 10am.
The car ended up on its roof and two fire crews from Rayleigh Weir were called to the scene.
Sub officer Dan Vickress said the crews worked quickly to cut the woman out the car and they also gave her first aid.
He said: "The crews took about 40 minutes to secure the woman and get her out of the car.
"We had to be very careful because she had been suspended because the car was on its roof. She suffered neck and back injuries.
"We gave her first aid, carefully put her onto a spinal board and she was taken to hospital."
Police closed the road while the firefighters worked to release her.
