Woman driver fights for life after car hits tree

A MOTORIST was cut free by firefighters after suffering life-threatening injuries when her car hit a tree.

The trapped 28-year-old was spotted by a passing driver on Grange Lane, Thorpe Hesley, at about 9.20am yesterday.

It is thought her grey Renault Clio had skidded on the wet road as she turned left on the way into the village.

The vehicle spun and the driver’s door hit the tree.

The woman, from High Greave, Sheffield, was the only person in the car and was trapped “for some time,” police said. She was taken to Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital.

Anyone with information is asked to call officers on 101, quoting incident 330 of December 4.

Firefighters freed a woman from her car after a crash in Brinsworth on Saturday evening.

Crews from Darnall and Rotherham were joined by the rescue unit at Bawtry Road shortly before 8pm.

The woman was taken to Rotherham General Hospital.
