THIS is the scene of a crash in which a woman had to be rescued.
Firefighters had to cut the woman out of the vehicle using winching and Hydraulic cutting equipment after she became trapped when it left the road before coming to rest on its side against a tree, which was over hanging a water course.
It happened near Winterfold House School on the A448 at 10.18pm on Saturday.
Two fire engines from Kidderminster, one from Bromsgrove and an off-road vehicle from Stourport were scrambled to the scene along with West Mercia Police, West Midlands Ambulance Service paramedics and a Medical Emergency Response Intervention Team (MERIT).
The woman was taken to hospital by ambulance and the fire crews made the vehicle safe before leaving the scene and handing over to police.
Station Commander Steve Fox, of Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, said: “This was a tricky incident with all blue light services working together.”
