Disabled woman injured in three-vehicle crash

Firefighters worked for an hour last night to release a disabled woman from her damaged car after a three-vehicle crash.

The accident happened shortly before 6pm at the junction of Burfield Road and Priest Hill, Old Windsor.

The injured woman, who is wheelchair bound, was driving a specially adapted Toyota car.

Firefighters from Windsor and Slough used hydraulic equipment and a stabiliser to free her, but had to take extra precautions because of her disabled condition.

She is believed to be in her 30s and to have suffered spinal injuries.

Police attended to close the road. The air ambulance also attended the scene but in the end the woman was taken to hospital by road.

Her Weimaraner dog was also in the car although it was uninjured, sitting there quietly while its owner was freed.

The two other drivers were unhurt. They were clearly distressed and stayed on the scene talking to police. They were breathalysed but both results were clear and no-one was arrested.

Firefighters left the scene soon after 7pm.
