A woman has been rushed to hospital after her car aquaplaned and hit the central reservation of the A30.

Police, and ambulance, the fire brigade and the Devon Air Ambulance were called to the A30 at Okehampton at around 11am today.

Fire Control received a call to say that a car had been involved in a collision with one person trapped.

Two fire crews from Okehampton and one crew from Hatherleigh found a female trapped inside her vehicle complaining of neck and head pain.

Firefighters used small tools to assist ambulance staff in freeing her after the roof was removed.

The road was closed in both directions in preparation fro the Devon Air Ambulance, however the road proved too bumpy for the helicopter to land.

The woman was taken to the Royal Devon & Exeter hospital by ambulance.

A recovery vehicle arrived to remove the damaged car at 12:37pm.

At midday another crash occurred on the A30.

A motorhome and a blue Ford Fiesta collided at Belstone just after noon.

The Fiesta and motorhome collided causing the car to spin and leaving the motorhome substantially damaged.
