A WOMAN has been rescued from her vehicle by emergency services using the jaws-of-life after being trapped for an hour.
Police said they were called to McAlister Street in Tumut at 10pm on Thursday by a concerned resident who claimed a car was being driven dangerously and had crashed into the gutter.
Police received a second call saying the vehicle had lost its rear tyre and had sparks coming from the wheel.
Upon arriving at the scene police found the vehicle had hit a power pole which caused the driver to become trapped.
The driver, a 23-year-old woman, was freed after one hour. Initially taken to Tumut Hospital, she was later transferred by helicopter to The Canberra Hospital.
The driver suffered head injuries and a compound fracture to her leg.
Police are yet to speak with the driver.
