A girl has been taken to hospital after a car ended up on its roof in Plympton, near Plymouth.

Police and fire crews were called to crash at 2:45am today on Woodford Avenue in Woodford.

Two fire crews, one from Plympton and one from Crownhill, arrived to find an 18-year-old female trapped in a Nissan Micra which had come to rest on its roof.

Fire crews used hydraulic rescue cutting equipment and small tools to release the girl.

A man was also in the car but was not trapped.

The crews administered first aid and left the teenager in the care of paramedics before she was taken to Derriford Hospital.

Police say the crash left a white Toyota Yaris and a black Ford Fiesta damaged.

The teenager's injuries are not thought to be serious.

    Has Plympton devolved from Plymouth ? I remember when it was integrated and having lived there for many years I always believed that I lived in Plymouth. I even had a Plymouth post code. To whom will the residents pay their council tax now ? I hope the young lady has recovered.

    It's good they are both OK. Maybe now they will learn to watch the road - too many die down here in wet weather. Just go a bit slower and concentrate.

    No wonder young drivers insurance is so high

    Car ends up on it's roof at 2.45 am with no other vehicle involved. Clearly a case of severe driver error but good that both of them survived.
