A WOMAN was cut free from her car after a crash in Iron Acton.

The female driver of a Mazda car was rescued by firefighters after the single-vehicle accident yesterday evening.

It happened on the B4059 at Latteridge Hill just before 6.30pm.

Three fire crews, one from Yate and two from Avonmouth, were called to the scene where they used hydraulic cutting equipment to remove the roof from the car.

Avon Fire and Rescue Service spokesman James Bladon said: "It is believed the car had rolled and ended up on all four wheels.

"As a precaution of possible spinal injuries, firefighters worked to remove the roof of the vehicle. The patient was put on a spinal board before being released from the vehicle and handed over to the care of paramedics."

The woman was the only person in the car. Her injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
