A WOMAN from Dursley has been charged with drink driving after a single vehicle collision in the town.
The 26-year-old was also charged with driving a motor vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence and using a motor vehicle without third party insurance after the incident on Uley Road at 5am on Sunday (October 6).
Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service control room received a call to reports of a road traffic collision, with a woman trapped in a blue Nissan Micra.
A crew of four firefighters from Dursley Fire Station and five with the specialist rescue appliance from Stroud Fire Station were mobilised to deal with the incident.
Speaking from the scene, watch commander Neil Bridges from the Dursley station confirmed that one vehicle had left the road, with one adult female trapped.
The vehicle had ended up down a slight embankment and was described as being in a precarious position.
The car was winched back to the main road which then allowed fire crews to release the female from the vehicle.
The woman was then treated at the scene by paramedics but had no serious injuries.
A Great Western Ambulance Service spokesman said: “A member of the public heard or witnessed the accident and was with her before we arrived.”
In total crews remained on scene for just over one hour.
The 26-year-old woman from St George's Road has been bailed to appear at Cheltenham Magistrates Court on Monday, November 18.
