8:00am Monday 9th September 2013 in News
Firefighters came across a road accident while returning to their station and cut a woman free from her car.
The accident, involving a Volkswagen Golf and a Peugeot, happened on Saturday tea-time and left a passenger in her 20s trapped in the Peugeot.
Bradford station crew commander Jarrod Stoney said the woman was in pain, with back and neck problems, but was not thought to be seriously injured.
Police, paramedics and firefighters from Fairweather Green were at the scene in Leeds Road, Bradford, when firefighters saw the accident on their way back to Bradford fire station, further along the road. Mr Stoney said: “We dealt with it by taking the roof off and getting her out. The injuries weren’t life-threatening, but she was in a bit of pain.”
The accident happened at about 5.20pm outside the Hindu Cultural Society.
