Woman freed from car after it hits lamp post

By Oliver Clay

A woman was rescued from a car after it hit a lamp post in Runcorn this morning.

Cheshire Police said the casualty was taken to Warrington Hospital by ambulance with bleeding but not life-threatening injuries after the incident was reported at 8.46am.

The collision happened on the exit slip from Bridgewater Junction to Halton Brow.

A police spokesman said the incident involved a Vauxhall Astra and no-one else was in the vehicle, which had “gone over the embankment” and “hit a lamp post”.

There were reports the casualty was "trapped" and remained conscious.

When the ECHO attended the scene, the exit slip was blocked at the top and a cordon was also place on the neighbouring street Castlefields Avenue North.

Emergency services were at the scene including a fire engine and ambulance plus highways staff.

The badly crumpled bonnet was visible close to the lamp post, which was leaning over the road.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS) deployed two appliances - one each from Runcorn and Widnes - to free the trapped motorist.

A CFRS spokesperson said: “The crew removed the person from the vehicle and handed them to the care of paramedics.

“Police and Highways Agency also attended to close the road while the incident was being dealt with.”
