Firefighters have cut a woman out of a car after the vehicle crashed in Whanganui.

The Fire Service received a 111 call from the scene of the crash at 2.15pm, shift manager Mike Wanoa said.

The car had crashed on Seddon St, Aramoho, but Wanoa did not know how the crash happened.

There were no other cars involved.

"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.
