ROTHERHAM firefighters had to cut a driver from her car after a traffic pile-up outside the fire station.
The silver Rover 45 was in stationary traffic on Aston Way at around 5pm yesterday — just metres from Aston fire station — when a black Vauxhall Corsa hit it from behind.
The Rover was pushed forward and collided with a silver Ford Ka.
Fire crews used cutting equipment to remove the Rover’s roof and free the driver — said to be about 50 years old — who was taken to hospital with suspected fractures in her leg and hip.
A 23-year-old woman driving the Vauxhall and a 27-year-old woman driving the Ford were both treated at the scene for minor injuries.
Police are asking anyone who witnessed the collision or any of the vehicles prior to it to contact them on non-emergency number 101, quoting incident number 857 of May 10.
Those with information can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
