Crews from South Molton and Barnstaple were mobilised to reports of a road traffic collision this morning, with persons trapped between the A399 / B3226 (Aller Cross, West Buckland) and Blakes Hill Road (Landkey).
On arrival crews discovered a two vehicle collision with four people trapped.
Crews used hydraulic cutting equipment to remove one female and two children from one vehicle and one male from the other vehicle. Two casualties were reported. One casualty, airlifted to hospital, is said to have life-threatening injuries.
Crews also used an environmental pack to make the drains safe as a small amount of oil was leaking.
The road was obviously closed causing significant traffic disruption to the area.
