Man cut free after Hatfield car smash
A MOTORIST was cut from the wreckage of his vehicle following an early morning car smash in Hatfield.
The 50-year-old had to be freed by firefighters after his blue Mitsubishi Lancer was in collision with a silver Ford Focus outside The Harrier pub in Bishops Rise.
Ambulance spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “The man was trapped in the wreckage for approximately 45 minutes.
“Paramedics worked very hard indeed to treat and stabilise him whilst the fire service cut away the car to free him.”
The man was later taken to the QE2 Hospital in WGC with a suspected fractured ankle.
