"One person, a female, was trapped in the vehicle and we had to cut her out, use our cutting gear to extricate her," he said.

Emergency services were stabilising the woman to prepare for her transport to hospital.

Wanoa was not sure of the woman's condition or whether anybody else had been in the car when it crashed.
