Firefighters had to remove the roof of a BMW to free an occupant after two cars crashed in North Yorkshire.
It happened at 9.55am yesterday on the A168 at Dishforth.
Fire crews from Ripon and Knaresborough responded to the collision involving a Discovery and BMW.
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “All occupants of the Discovery were out of the vehicle and taken to hospital for precautionary checks.
“The occupant of the BMW, a male in his forties was medically trapped and extricated via a full roof removal.
“The crews used e-draulic cutting equipment and spreaders, a reciprocating saw, glass master, sharps protection, stabilisation blocks, spinal board and small tools for extrication.
“The casualty was then transported to hospital via road ambulance with potentially life changing injuries.”
