Firefighters rescued a woman after a car rolled on top of her after the handbrake was left off.
They were called to the incident in Malton at 12.14pm today (Saturday).
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “Crews from Malton responded to a female who had exited her car without putting the handbrake on.
“The result of this was the car rolling back causing the female to fall.”
The car’s wheel came to rest on top of the woman’s leg.
“Crews stabilised the vehicle and used spreaders to raise the car sufficiently to free the female’s trapped leg,” the spokesperson added.
The woman suffered a suspected break to her lower right leg and a hip injury. She was taken by to hospital for treatment.
