Woman rescued from under HGV

A37 Wells Road at the junction with Broadwalk, Knowle, Bristol

Firefighters have assisted with the rescued of an elderly woman from underneath a heavy goods vehicle.

When crews arrived they quickly jacked up the HGV and inflated air bags to support the vehicle. This allowed paramedics access to the woman in order to treat her.

She was taken to hospital by ambulance in a stable but life-threatening condition.
