Three people have been rushed to Derriford after a crash in south-east Cornwall.

An elderly woman has suffered serious injuries to her head and chest after two cars hit at Trerulefoot.

Police, paramedics and fire crews were scrambled to the A374 at 2.30pm on Thursday afternoon.

A stretch of the road had to be shut.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "A two-vehicle RTC was reported at Kernow Mill, Trerulefoot, Saltash, at 2.30pm (just around the bend on the Polbathic Road from Kernow).

"Ambulance, fire and police are in attendance.

"One elderly female driver was trapped in one of the vehicles; she has sustained serious head and chest injuries.

"Other occupants from the vehicles are walking wounded with neck and chest pain.

"Three people have been taken to Derriford.

"The road will be closed for some time. Closure on from Trerulefoot down to Hessenford on the A387. Closure on at St Germans."

A spokesperson from Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "One appliance from Liskeard with six firefighters, one appliance from Saltash with five firefighters and a Rescue Tender from Bodmin with six firefighters were mobilised to a two vehicle road traffic collision just off of the Trerulefoot round about on the A374.

"On arrival it was confirmed that one person was trapped in a car on scene.

"Firefighters used crash rescue equipment to cut free the casualty. Once free the casualty was left in the care of Ambulance paramedics and crews made the scene safe."
