Area: Central
County: Devon

2 fire appliances from Ottery St Mary and Honiton were mobilised following a call from Police requesting our attendance to a one vehicle RTC, where a car had overturned coming to rest on its side and trapping an elderly male.

The initial crew from Ottery St Mary arrived on scene at 10:45hrs and confirmed the car was in fact on its roof and blocking the road. They set to work stabilising the vehicle, before extricating the elderly gentleman, confirming his release at 10:52hrs. The crew from Honiton were returned en route at this time as their services were not required. We made the vehicle and scene safe, before leaving duty of care with both Ambulance and Police.
