A person has been rescued from a car following an incident on Mill Street this afternoon.
A car crashed into two other vehicles before colliding with a house.
Emergency services were called out to Mill Street shortly after 1pm today (Tuesday).
A police spokesman said the driver, a woman, suffered a minor injury and was taken home by a family member.
Firefighters from Ottery St Mary and Honiton were sent to the scene after a call from the ambulance service to help extricate a person from the vehicle.
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.”
