A DRIVER was trapped in her car following an accident with another vehicle.

A silver Nissan Micra and a black Honda CR-V collided in Burrfields Road, Copnor, Portsmouth, just after 10am today.

Two fire engines from Southsea, one from Cosham – along with the special equipment unit – was sent to the scene.

The roof of the Nissan Micra was removed in order to free the driver.

Police were diverting traffic at the scene but traffic is now flowing freely.

Vanessa Moore, the shaken driver of the Honda CR-V, was unhurt following the incident and expressed her shock.

Mrs Moore, owner of nearby Colourtech, was driving to work with her two Springer Spaniel dogs Murphy and Tia when the incident happened.

She said: ‘The dogs are a bit shaken up too.

‘I am lucky I was in my car and not a smaller one. I ran out to see if the other driver was hurt and was shouting at her to see if she was OK.’

Witness Paul Xuereb, 43, owner of 27/4 Autos, said: ‘We heard screeching of tyres and then a big bang.

‘It looked as if the driver was knocked out by her airbag. I don’t know how hurt she was.

‘When you hear a big bang like that you think something bad has happened.’
