Two in hospital after Maybole crash

Two people have been taken to hospital following a collision on the A77 at Maybole this morning.

Firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to free one of the casualties involved in the incident, which took place shortly before 8:20am.

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) crews from Maybole and Ayr were mobilised by Operations Control in response to a call from the ambulance service and firefighters reached the scene around seven minutes later.

A woman had been removed to hospital by ambulance prior to the arrival of the SFRS crews, while a second was being attended to by paramedics inside her vehicle.

Watch Manager James Davidson, the incident commander said: “We were operating alongside the paramedics and together established a plan to safely release the casualty.

“Our team worked with cutting equipment to free her. She was then moved to an ambulance and taken to Ayr Hospital.”
