A WOMAN had to be cut free from her car after being in collision with a bus this morning (Thursday).

The woman, believed to be in her early 20s, was driving along Whempstead Road, Benington, when she was in collision with the single-decker bus.

She was trapped in her car and had to be freed. She was then taken to hospital by paramedics.

It happened about 8.15am.

Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said the woman suffered neck and back injuries, which are not life-threatening.

He added: “Both ambulance and fire crews from Stevenage station worked for over an hour to free the woman and it was very difficult as the car was on its side against a grass verge.”

The bus was empty at the time of the collision and the male driver was uninjured.
