Firefighters attend serious Wadhurst collision


ESFRS firefighters assisted with cutting a woman free from the wreckage of a car in Wadhurst at the weekend. 

Crews from both Crowborough and Wadhurst attended the road traffic collision along the B2099 on Saturday afternoon (11th February) at 3.20pm. They used hydraulic cutting equipment to rescue the trapped woman, after the road had been closed off to motorists.

Both Sussex Police and South East Coast Ambulance Service were also in attendance at the scene of the collision, near Darbys Lane. ESFRS crews stayed until 4.27pm, making the area safe for the public. 

A 48-year-old local woman was taken to Kings College Hospital, London, with serious injuries, following the head-on collision in Moseham Hill.

The injured woman was travelling North West in a silver Daihatsu, and had overtaken two cars prior to colliding with a green Land Rover Defender, coming in the opposite direction. The Land Rover driver, a 51-year-old local man, and his four passengers received minor injuries. 

The drivers of a silver Rover and another green Land Rover Discovery, who were overtaken by the silver Daihatsu, were uninjured.
