A WOMAN had to be cut free from her car following a two vehicle collision on the Standing Stane Road near Kirkcaldy this morning (Friday).

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service applicances from Kirkcaldy responded to a call just after 10.30 a.m. and upon arrival found a car on the grass verge with one female trapped.

Firefighters immediately worked to stabilise the vehicle and used specialist hydraulic cutting gear to make a flap in the roof and remove the near side of the car.

Firefighters worked closely with ambulance personnel to make space and extricate the casualty safely from the car.

The woman was treated at the roadside by paramedics then taken to Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy.

The Scottish Air Ambulance was requested but it was not required.

Station Manager Dave Wishart said: “This incident was an excellent example of Fire, Police and Ambulance personnel working together to help the driver trapped in the car and given the nature of the incident, achieving a positive outcome.

“Police are continuing with their investigations to establish the cause.”
