UPDATE: Man taken to hospital with neck and back pain after Hornchurch car crash
A man had to be cut out of his car and immobilised by emergency services after a road traffic collision in Hornchurch yesterday (Monday).
London Ambulance Service sent one crew to the scene in Upper Rainham Road at about 1.10pm, where they found a man in his 40s conscious but experiencing neck and back pain.
To avoid aggravating any possible injuries, the ambulance staff sent for the fire brigade to cut him out of his car.
A fire crew from Romford and a fire rescue unit from Hornchurch attended and cut the man’s roof off so he could be lifted out. He was immobilised with a spinal board and neck collar and taken to hospital.
The crash involved one other vehicle.
