Dunedin fire crews cut the roof from a car to free a trapped
man after a head-on collision on Highcliff Rd, Otago
Station officer Scott Lindsay, of St Kilda, said appliances
from St Kilda and Lookout Point fire stations were called to
attend the two-car accident at 5.28pm.
A woman (22) was assisted from a grey Suzuki Swift into an
ambulance, while ''jaws of life'' were used to cut the roof
from a red Mitsubishi Colt so the trapped driver (46) could
be given emergency treatment before being freed and assisted
into another ambulance.
Ambulance communication centre team manager John Sneesby said
the man and woman sustained moderate to serious injuries and
were taken to Dunedin Hospital.
