A WOMAN was cut free from wreckage following a collision with a bus stop in Essex.

A local man and woman, both believed to be in their 50s, had been travelling in the car when it collided with a bus stop.

Firefighters cut away the roof and door of the car as paramedics monitored the injured woman, who was then taken to Colchester General Hospital for further care.

Duty operations manager, Roger Brown, said: The man was out of the car and walking around when we got there. We checked him over, and fortunately he was found to be uninjured.

“The woman was still in the car and complaining of pain in her neck and chest, so we decided the safest way to move her would be to lift her out through the top of the car on a spine board.”
