The emergency services were quickly on the scene and Maddison was taken for questioning by the police.

Working together, the fire and ambulance crews assessed the casualties and secured the car whilst the students watched on and were amazed how quickly they worked together.

Steve Screaton, Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue road safety manager, said: “If we keep working with schools and colleges educating students of the dangers and risk associated with driving and travelling on Lincolnshire roads then we will continue to see reductions in casualty figures for this age group.”
