FIRE CREWS were called after a car left the road in Juniper Drive and hit a garage adjoining a house. Although no-one was trapped, firefighters were requested to attend to deal with an unsafe structure.
Initially, ECFRS’ Urban Search and Rescue team based at Lexden, which is equipped with specialist equipment for dealing with collapsed buildings, was mobilised. The team was later recalled after the first local crew reported the equipment was not required.
An ambulance team was called to deal with a woman, believed to be the driver of the vehicle, who was suffering from shock. She was left in their care.
