Wednesday 4th February 2015 – 11.33am – Murray MacGregor.
A teenage girl who was left hanging by her seatbelt after her car overturned has been extracted through the rear window of her car.
The crash happened at about 8.10am in Halton Road in the New Oscott area of Sutton Coldfield.
A rapid response vehicle, an ambulance and a paramedic area support officer were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found the 18 year old woman hanging upside down in her overturned car. A Ford Fiesta and a small van, which were parked, had also been damaged in the crash.
“The woman was complaining of hip and back pain. Due to her position, ambulance staff worked with firefighters to lower her, face down, onto a spinal board before she was lifted out through the rear of the Citroen C2.
“After being extracted she was assessed, turned onto her back and given pain relief at the scene. The teenager was then taken to Good Hope Hospital for further treatment.”
