TWO cars were written off after a crash in Barkham last night (Wednesday), say firefighters.

A fire crew from Bracknell station were called to Barkham Road, Wokingham, around 6.30pm, where they had to cut a woman - believed to be in her 50s - out of her black Vauxhall Astra.

They moved her onto a spinal board before she was checked over by paramedics and taken to hospital.

Firefighter Steve Blackman said: "The woman was trapped with a bad neck, so we had to cut the back seats of the car out.

"Both cars are pretty much a write-off I think."

He added that it looked as though one car had gone into the back of the other.

The male driver of the other vehicle was uninjured.

Police were also in attendance.
