Have your say

A 19-YEAR-OLD woman had to be cut free from her car after it ploughed through a fence and landed upside down in a front garden.

The green Vauxhall Corsa ended up in the garden of a house in Downend Road, Fareham, after it collided with a black Corsa on the road shortly after 8pm on Friday.

A total of 17 firefighters from Fareham and Cosham went to the scene and rescued the woman, who was a passenger in the car.

The woman, from Fareham, suffered serious back and neck injuries and was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital for treatment.

The drivers of both cars were not harmed.

The road was closed for more than an hour.

Paul Cambell , crew manager at Fareham fire station, said: ‘It was quite a dangerous situation because the car had hit a gas cylinder as it entered the garden so we were keen to get the woman out as soon as possible.

‘Traffic was diverted while we were at the scene.’

Police are appealing for witnesses. Call 101.
