Female casualty extricated from vehicle following collision on Silk Mills Road

Two fire appliances from Taunton were mobilised to calls from the police and a passing motorist reporting a road traffic collision with persons trapped on Silk Mills Road at 18:16 this evening (Wednesday).

On arrival crews confirmed this was a two vehicle collision with one female casualty trapped in one of the vehicles.

After liaising with on scene paramedics crews used hydraulic cutting equipment to remove one of the doors, for space creation, in order to allow for an effective extrication of the female casualty.

Once released she was left in the hands of paramedics, as crews made both the vehicle and scene safe.

The incident was brought under control at 19:03 and duty of care was then left with the police.
