Firies use Jaws of Life to cut woman from car after crash

FIRE crews used the Jaws of Life to extract a woman from her car following a two-vehicle accident on the Cunningham Hwy.

The crash took place at about 10am on Friday, just before the Amberley turn-off.

The crash was believed to have occurred when one of the vehicles tried to make a U-turn across traffic and was struck by another vehicle.

It was understood that the 41-year-old woman who was extracted from her car sustained neck and shoulder injuries and was taken to Ipswich Hospital.

The Queensland Ambulance Service confirmed that the woman was now in a stable condition.

The female driver of the other vehicle escaped with no serious injuries.

Emergency crews were at the scene until about 11am.
