FIRE crews had to cut a woman free from her vehicle following a three-car crash in York.

The accident happened on the road between Copmanthorpe and Bishopthorpe, at the junction of Cowper Lane, at about 8.30am yesterday.

A blue Ford Transit van, a silver Toyota Yaris and a silver Peugeot 406 were involved in the crash, but a North Yorkshire Police spokesman said nobody was hurt.

A Fire Service spokesman said the woman had been cut free from one of the cars and taken to hospital with suspected neck injuries.
