Dramatic moment fire crews free trapped driver from crashed car in someone's garden
Firefighters have shared dramatic pictures of a car that ploughed into a garden in Devon, leaving the driver trapped.
The car lost control on a slipway and slid across a grass verge, ploughed through a fence, and ended up partially on its side in a garden.
Emergency services were called to the scene in Kingsteignton, Devon, where they found the driver "pinned in the car".
Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said the driver's injuries meant crews took the decision to cut them out of the car using specialist equipment.
Images shared by the service on social media show the crumpled car on its side as crews work to free the driver.

In an update shared alongside the pictures on the Newton Abbot Fire Station Facebook page, the fire service said once fire crews had cut the driver out of the car, he was removed on a stretcher and handed over to ambulance colleagues for treatment.
"All emergency services on the scene worked closely together and showed a strong understanding of each others roles," the post said.
It added: "This allowed everyone to work towards achieving the best outcome for the casualty. Everyone at Newton Abbot fire station would like to wish the occupant all the best and a speedy recovery."
There has been no update on the driver's condition or injuries.
