Fire crews have rescued two people from a car involved in a collision in Penkridge.  

Firefighters were called to Teddesley Road, at 8.45am this morning (Monday 15 August), following reports of a two-vehicle-collision.

Crews from Rising Brook and Stafford attended as did paramedics and Staffordshire Police.

On arrival, crews found a black Peugeot 107 and a red Vauxhall Corsa involved in a collision, with the Corsa on its roof.

Crews used hydraulic cutting equipment to extricate the driver of the Corsa, a woman in her 60s, and a male passenger, in his 80s, from the car.

Both were taken to hospital by land ambulance.

Crews remain at the scene.
