A 35-year-old woman has been taken to hospital after her car rolled in Clyde on Wednesday 6 August.

Emergency services were called to the incident just after 7.15am, to reports of a two-car collision and a person trapped at Gande Belmonde Avenue.

Victoria Police say the crash occurred between a car and a parked car, with the 35-year-old female driver – who was the only person involved – taken to hospital.

Ambulance Victoria said paramedics transported the woman to Frankston Hospital in a stable condition with upper body injuries.

The exact cause of the collision is yet to be revealed by police at this stage.

Firefighters from Clyde and one Fire Rescue Victoria vehicle responded, where they found the woman sitting on the grass with a resident.

Clyde CFA firefighter Ian Earle said the driver, believed to be a medical worker, had been rescued by a neighbour after they brought over a ladder and placed it inside the car, allowing the trapped woman to climb out.

He said it’s believed the car overturned after colliding with a parked car, pushing it about three to four metres.

“It was lucky, but it was probably that early in the morning and no people were around,” Mr Earle said. “If she hadn’t of hit the car she would’ve kept on going into a house.”

Fire crews remained on scene until just after 8.30am.
