A TEENAGER was seriously injured after being trapped under a car in a traffic accident.

The 15-year-old was hospitalized just before noon after the accident on Chelford Road in Nether Alderley on Thursday March 11th.

There had been a collision between a black Ford ecoSport and a silver Vauxhall Astra towing a trailer.

Firefighters took part and rescued the boy under the Astra.

He was rushed to Manchester Children’s Hospital with severe leg injuries. His condition is not considered life threatening.

A woman was also trapped in the Ford and was cut out and given medical treatment. Another person was injured in the incident.

Crews from Bollington, Birchwood, and Wilmslow fire stations were dispatched to the scene.

A Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “One person was physically trapped in the Ford and a 15-year-old boy was trapped under the Astra.

“Firefighters released the teenager and he was turned over to paramedics. Firefighters also used absorbent pads to soak up a small fuel leak at the crime scene.”

A North West Ambulance Service spokesman confirmed that “multiple resources” were involved in the accident, with two people hospitalized while another was classified as “walking wounded”.
