Oook so this story completely underplayed... as a witness this was a completely shocking high speed rtc, yet again the fire service are commented as having 'cut someone out their car as if they were the only ones to intervene'. An ambulance crew who happened to be coming out the takeaway as this happened leapt into action throwing their untouched food on the floor to run accross, one climbed in through the back of one car to treat the driver who had to be cut free, he remained in the car the whole time from waiting on LFB and then when they were cutting the car around him. His partner a scottish guy with brute force pulled open the door of another vehicle which at this stage was filling with smoke, cut the drivers seatbelt and dragged the unconcious girl to safety. An off duty paramedic ran from his car to assist the two on duty paramedics already with their hands full, soon followed by an off duty doctor.... All working extremely hard as a unit for at least 12 minutes before any help arrived. I hope the guys eventually got something to eat!
