A CRASH victim, who was trapped unconscious in his car after hitting a tree, was rescued by firefighters last night.

Crews  from Henley, Didcot and Dee Road Reading arrived the scene in Rotherfield Greys near Henley-on-Thames just after 10pm where a member of the public was already trying to wake up the man but without response.

Firefighters started immediate emergency care and secured the vehicle to make sure it was stable.

Paramedics were on scene a few minutes later and assisted the fire crews with the victim.

They used cutting gear to free him from the vehicle and handed him over to the paramedics.

The scene was left to Thames Valley Police to investigate.

Firefighter Michael Clarke from Henley said: "We would like to remind people to be extra careful driving in these wintery conditions, especially at night on country roads."
