Firefighters, police and an ambulance were called to a road traffic collision on Tuesday evening between two cars in Maidenhead.

Two cars crashed into each other on the mini roundabout between Courthouse Road and St Marks Road, rolling one of them onto its side.

The driver of the car that rolled onto its side was suspended in mid-air by her seatbelt.

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service crews from Maidenhead, Windsor and Slough Fire Stations attended the scene and entered the car via a side door and the boot, as well as cutting through the windscreen.

Firefighters put the woman on a spinal board to safely remove her from the car. At 5.20pm South Central Ambulance Service were called. Crews were at the scene for around 40 minutes.

SCAS sent one ambulance crew to assess and treat the patient for minor injuries. 

She was then taken to Wexham Park Hospital.

Thames Valley Police also closed the roads all around the roundabout until about 6.30pm.

The damaged car was taken away on a flatbed truck.
