A CAR crash victim had to be cut out of a car before being rushed to hospital following a collision yesterday (January 20) in Sutton St Nicholas.

All three emergency services were called out to the two-car collision, outside the Golden Cross Inn, at 9.30am.

The driver of a blue Volkswagen Caddy van was taken to hospital in an ambulance with a broken arm after the fire officers used their cutting equipment to perform the rescue.

Three other people were treated at the scene; a passenger from the van and a driver and passenger from a silver Volkswagen Golf.
