FIREFIGHTERS have freed a woman from her car after it collided with a wall.

Crews from both Cosham and Southsea were called the collision, which involved two vehicles, at 3.10pm.

Reports initially said the incident happened on Elphinstone Road, Southsea, though updated reports put the location at the junction of Kent Road and Ashburton Road, nearby.

The cause of the collision, which happened between a Ford Transit van and a Ford Focus, is not known.

Medics from South Central Ambulance Service asked fire crews to take the roof off the car after assessing the elderly female car driver, who was found to be ‘medically trapped’ in the vehicle due to injury.

The woman was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital shortly after 4pm, along with another casualty where they are being treated for minor injuries.
