A 56-year-old woman had to be cut free from her car after it left the road and crashed in Holbeach.

The crash happened in Foxes Low Road where a Vauxhall Corsa driven by the woman from Holbeach ran off the road at about 7.10pm yesterday.

Firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to release the woman who was then taken to Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, with a fractured breastbone.

Meanwhile, a 36-year-old man from Pinchbeck was hurt after a Nissan X-Trail he was driving crashed into a telegraph pole in Small Drove Lane, West Pinchbeck.

The man had to be cut free from the vehicle by firefighters from Spalding after the crash just after 5.30pm yesterday.

There was also a crash on the A17 in Long Sutton where a lorry and Skoda Fabia car collided at about 12.15pm.

Drivers using the B1359 Main Road and Fleet Road faced delays while both vehicles were recovered, but no one was hurt.

Finally, two people were injured after a blue Ford Focus and silver Subaru Forester collided on the A15 Bourne Road in Thurlby.

It happened at about 5.10pm last Tuesday when a 57-year-woman from Peterborough who was driving the Focus had to be freed by firefighters using hydraulic cutting gear.

The woman and a 44-year-old man who was a passenger in the car, also from Peterborough, were both taken to hospital with minor injuries, while the driver of the Subaru was not thought to have been injured.

Police closed the A15 between Northorpe and Bourne roundabout for about 90 minutes to allow for both vehicles to be recovered.
