Woman pinned between two cars after rolling vehicle accident on Whitelands Road, High Wycombe
A WOMAN was pinned between two cars after the handbrake came off on a vehicle which slid down a hill.
The middle aged lady was rushed to hospital with a leg injury after being trapped on Whitelands Road, High Wycombe last night about 9pm.
The severity of her injury is unclear currently although it was just one leg affected, the fire service said.
The road was shut for over an hour while a police investigation took place.
The woman was there with her husband and a child and the accident happened at the bottom of the hill. It is not clear how far the empty car rolled before hitting her.
Alex Strand, High Wycombe Fire Station Watch Manager, said: “A vehicle handbrake had come off, it rolled down the hill and the lady was trapped between two cars, pinned in.
“She was rushed off to hospital with leg injuries. The hill was quite steep, about 30 degrees so looks like it was doing quite a speed.
“We assisted the ambulance service.”
He said although it was unusual to find a person pinned in that way the crew is sometimes called out for accidents when a handbrake has come off and a vehicle has hit another as a result.
