Driver freed after car crash | Photos

A driver has been taken to hospital suffering a head injury after his car crashed in South Dubbo on Sunday.

Rescuers used the jaws of life equipment to free the man from the wreckage of the sedan, an operation that took at least half an hour.

Police are investigating if speed was a factor.

Emergency services were called to the intersection of Gipps and Denison streets between 12 and 12.30pm.

Police, paramedics, Fire and Rescue NSW and the Dubbo Rescue Squad arrived at the scene to find a white Ford Falcon sedan was heavily damaged and had partially mounted a gutter on Gipps Street.

The vehicle had green P-plates displayed.

Dubbo Rescue Squad freed the man with the aid of the jaws of life equipment.

Squad captain David Chenhall said the rescue took about half an hour, with paramedics stabilising the patient and then rescuers getting him out efficiently and in a way that minimised his injuries.

A NSW Ambulance spokesman said the man was conscious and breathing, and had multiple lacerations to his head.

Police Inspector Mark Dixon said it was a single vehicle accident with a single male occupant of the vehicle.

The man suffered a head injury, was assessed at the scene and was taken to Dubbo Hospital for examination as a precaution, he said.

A section of Gipps Street was closed until the wreckage was cleared away and the incident drew residents of the neighbourhood out into the street.
