Firefighters from Glastonbury helped free a person who was trapped in a car following a crash in Horsington yesterday evening (April 4).
Just after 6.15pm, two fire engines from Wincanton and Castle Cary along with the rescue tender and support pump from Glastonbury, plus a fire officer, attended a road traffic collision near to the Half Moon Inn, at Horsington near Wincanton, where one female was trapped.
Crews got to work with hydraulic cutting equipment and small tools to remove the door.
There was also one male casualty already out of the vehicle when the crews arrived.
A full roof removal was then carried out for the ambulance crews to assess the casualty.
The patient was removed from the car on to a long board and then to a stretcher before she was conveyed to hospital by land ambulance, along with the male casualty.
