A woman was taken to hospital with suspected back injuries this evening (Saturday) following a single vehicle accident in Ashford Hill.

Two fire engines from Newbury and a third from Hampshire were called at 5pm to Ashford Hill Road, to a collision on a bend involving a gold coloured car and signpost.

The driver, the only occupant, in her late 20's, was removed from the vehicle on a long board, by paramedics assisted by firefighters, and after firefighters had removed seating from the large vehicle.

The road remained open and police were also at the scene.

Firefighters departed the scene at 5.45pm.

South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) spokeswoman, Gill Hodgetts, said ambulance services were called around 4pm to the incident, including one ambulance and one rapid response vehicle.

A 28-year-old woman was immobilised on the long board she was removed from the vehicle on and by paramedics at the scene, before being taken to the Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital for a spinal condition check.
