FIREFIGHTERS pulled a person from the wreckage of their vehicle while the air ambulance flew overhead after a two-vehicle smash on the A-495.

At about 9am on Wednesday (January 26) three people were involved in a head-on collision between a car and small truck close to San Bartolome de la Torre in Huelva.

One person physically trapped in the wreckage was released by fire crews using hydraulic cutting gear, under the guidance of a doctor from the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service.

The injured people were then taken to hospital by road and air ambulance.

The A-495 was then closed for a number of hours as emergency services remains at the scene until 11.15pm on Wednesday.
