A mother had to be cut from a car after her driver son lost control of the vehicle in wet weather conditions.

The Toyota GT86 came off Victoria Road West, Cleveleys, smashing into a garden wall and tree, leaving the mother trapped inside while the son was able to get out uninjured.

Emergency services were called to the scene, at the roundabout near Morrisons supermarket, at 9.21 on Thursday night.

It took crews from Bispham Fire Station around an hour to cut the woman free, using specialist equipment, due to “complex” safety systems in the sports car.

She was taken to Preston Royal to be treated for a broken wrist and suspected pelvis injuries, and suspected ankle or foot injuries.

Watch manager Michael Spencer, from Bispham Fire Station, said: “We believe the driver has lost control of the car in wet conditions and come off the roundabout.

“The car has skidded sideways into a garden wall and forwards into a tree.

“The son was able to get out of the car uninjured but the mum was in the passenger side, which was impaled into the wall, and had to be cut out.”
