Woman freed from crash car

A WOMAN had to be cut free from her car after a crash in Wraxall last night.

The accident, involving two vehicles, happened at about 10.30pm yesterday (Sun) near to the New Battleaxes pub in Bristol Road.

Fire crews from Nailsea and Avonmouth attended the scene following reports the female driver of a silver Vauxhall Corsa was trapped by her legs.

They used hydraulic cutting equipment to free her from the car before she was taken by ambulance to Bristol Royal Infirmary with leg injuries. Her injuries are not thought to have been life-changing.

The woman driver of the second car, a grey Toyota Hilux, and a passenger escaped without injury.

The road was blocked while emergency services dealt with the incident and was eventually reopened at 2.20am this morning (Mon).
