Woman trapped in two-vehicle collision
TWO people were taken to hospital following a collision between a Ford Focus and Jaguar in St Albans last Wednesday afternoon.
The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) has released an amended account of the incident, which had earlier said that a two-year-old girl had been taken to hospital.
However there was no child involved in the collision, and a spokeswoman has apologised for the error.
The EEAST was called to the incident following a report of a two-car collision on Shenley Lane at 3.17pm, Wednesday August 10, in which a woman was trapped.
The spokeswoman added: “After the fire service freed her, EEAST crews assessed and treated her for non-life-threatening injuries.
“They then took her and another patient with non-life-threatening injuries to Watford General Hospital. A further patient was assessed and treated on scene. No further information was available.”
• A 40-year-old man was charged after being arrested on suspicion of driving over the limit. He appeared in court on August 11 and was released on bail to reappear later this month.
