AN air ambulance rushed a woman driver to hospital with serious injuries after she careered her BMW into a fence.

The 32-year-old was pinned in her car and fire crews spent over two hours attempting to cut the driver out in Packhorse Lane, South Mimms.

Police had to cordon off roads for half a mile around the smash near the RSPCA in Southridge just after 2.30pm yesterday.

The woman was flown to the Royal London hospital in East London and is now in a stable condition.

Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “Our team of paramedics and technicians worked alongside the fire service for more than two hours to free the lady.

“It was a very delicate incident to deal with, and our crews worked very hard indeed to stabilise her throughout."
