Hospital airlift after woman cut from crash wreckage

FIREFIGHTERS used cutting gear to free a woman after the car she was driving collided with a wall.

Crews from Mansfield Road Fire Station and South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue’s Technical Rescue Unit, near Wath, were called to the A57 at Aston, at around 9.50am this morning.

The woman, thought to be in her 50s, was trapped inside a Peugeot 206 hatchback by her legs after colliding with a lorry and then a wall near to Carlton Golf Club.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said: “Firefighters used hydraulic spreading equipment to free the casualty before she was removed from the car and airlifted to the Northern General hospital.

“There is currently no information on the extent of her injuries.

“The driver of the lorry wasn’t injured.”

Fire crews left the scene at around 11.30am.
