A woman had to be cut free from a car by firefighters after a crash in north Norfolk.

The accident involved a BMW and a Mazda and happened on the A149 at Thorpe Market, near North Walsham, at the junction with the B1436, at about 8pm on Thursday, September 14.

A Norfolk police spokesman said: “There were two people trapped in one vehicle and one had suffered a head injury. The fire service had to cut a woman free from a car. The road was closed until about 10.30pm.”

Fire appliances from Sheringham, Cromer and North Walsham attended, and the crews “used hydraulic rescue equipment to extract a casualty from a car”.

The East of England ambulance service sent two ambulances and an ambulance car.

A spokesman said: “Three people were injured, two of whom were taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Their injuries were not deemed to be life-threatening.”
