FIRE engines from Barnstaple and South Molton headed to Bish Mill, near South Molton, last night, after a Jeep crashed into two parked cars.
After arriving at the scene of the crash, which happened at around 6.30pm, firefighters found two people trapped in the blue Cherokee Jeep, which had crashed into a black Peugeot 206 and a red Alfa Romeo.
The firefighters set about freeing the trapped driver and passenger using hydraulic cutting equipment, but had to call for assistance in the shape of another engine from Barnstaple before the job was done.
The two casualties were taken to hospital by ambulance with injuries which a police spokesman described as "potentially serious". It is thought the male driver suffered a broken or dislocated hip, while the seriousness of the other persons injuries wasn't known.
The road, the B3227, which had been closed between Folly Lane and the A361 while the firefighters freed the casualties, was re-opened at around 10.30pm.
