Woman pulled out of car after North Shore crash

A woman had to be pulled out of her car after she crashed into a roadside barrier and slid down an embankment on North Shore this morning.

The 43-year-old, from Devonshire, was taken to hospital with what police described as “non-life threatening injuries”.

Workers from the Green Leaves Landscaping company, who were quickly on the scene, managed to secure the vehicle with ropes.

Fire Service officers then helped extricate the driver from the car.

The accident happened around 10.15 some 200 metres east of Barkers Hill.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to the collision to call police on 295-0011.
