The road was closed for some time as police and emergency services cleared the debris.

Magpas Helimedix flew to the scene of the collision to find a woman, in her 60s, trapped in the car with serious injuries to her lower body.

The Magpas team worked alongside a fire and rescue crew to remove the patient safely from the vehicle.

A Magpas spokesman said: “Our team sedated the woman and administered enhanced pain relief, whilst working alongside an EEAST Ambulance Crew and Rapid Response Paramedic at the scene.
