Woman rescued after car flips

A 62-year-old woman motorist was rescued from her flipped car yesterday, after the vehicle struck a wall along Somerset Road.

A Somerset woman ran to the scene after hearing “a loud crash” at about 1.55pm, from in front of St Joseph’s Church.

“I go outside and the car is destroyed,” she said.

“The guys from the supermarket came out and helped her out of the car. I don’t think she was hurt but the car was twisted over in the road. There were a lot of people there right away to help.”

The witness said police arrived quickly, and traffic was stopped for about 30 minutes until the car was removed.

“It was very unusual and people were very surprised,” the woman said, saying she had lived in the area for six years.

The witness said the driver was able to walk away from the scene of the accident.

A police spokesman said the woman driver received minor injuries following the accident near Hook N’ Ladder Lane.
