DRIVER TRAPPED UNDER 4X4 FOR AN HOUR IN HORRIFIC MOTORWAY CRASH
This was the chaotic scene when the driver of a 4x4 vehicle became periously trapped under his vehicle for an HOUR when it overturned after a crash on a busy motorway.
The male driver, in his 60's, was partially ejected out of his seat, leaving his leg trapped under the vehicle that had been flung on its side.
He was eventually released by fire crews using air bags as he suffered serious leg and pelvis injuries.
The crash occurred on the M40 Southbound, just south of Junction 12 in Northamptonshire at around 12.10pm today (Thu) as the vehicle was in collision with a car.
Two ambulances, two paramedic officers and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended the scene.
Paramedic Area Manager for Northamptonshire, Martyn Scott, said: 'Ambulance crews arrived on scene to find a 4x4 vehicle that had overturned which was towing a trailer with agricultural equipment.
'The man driving the 4x4, believed to be in his 60's, was partially ejected from the vehicle and his leg became trapped under the vehicle that was on its side.
'He received emergency treatment at the scene by ambulance crews, including pain relief, and his condition was stabilised.
'The vehicle was then lifted by the fire service using air bags and he was safely removed. The man was trapped for around one hour and received further treatment for his serious leg injury and a pelvic injury once he was released.
