The crew confirmed a car had left the road and collided with two stationary vehicles and a house.

A fire service spokesperson said: “There was one female still within the vehicle who was physically unable to get out.

“Crews were able to identify a further means of escape via the back of the vehicle and were quick to assist in ensuring the casualty was moved to a place of safety.

“The casualty was left in the hands of the paramedics and the scene was handed over to police who will remain on site awaiting the arrival of a building surveyor who has been called to check the safety of the property hit by the colliding vehicle.”
