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.
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.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
