A WOMAN ended up badly trapped between her car and a wall today.
The 57-year-old started the engine of her blue Vauxhall Corsa on the steep driveway outside her home on Keldregate in Bradley at 5am today.
She then got out to de-ice the windscreen, but was horrified to find the car moving forwards. She tried to get back in and almost made it, but her ankle ended up trapped in the car door and then bent up against the wall.
Paramedics stabilised her while firefighters carried out a complex rescue operation to shift the car without causing her more pain or injury.
Watch manager Andy Blackburn, of Huddersfield fire station, said: "The steepness of the drive and the angle the car had gone into the wall meant we could not simply push it away.
"We needed to cut some iron railings off the wall and used heavy rescue gear and airbags to stabilise and then lift the car before pushing it to one side.
The woman's ankle was broken."
