A young woman cut out of her car following a horrific crash in Wells is recovering from serious injuries.

The 20-year-old had to be cut out of her car by fire crews last Saturday after a collision trapping her car in a precarious position up against a wall.

The collision occurred at 11.40am and she was taken to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol for treatment.

The police have since said that her injuries are not life threatening or life changing.

Four other casualties received treatment for minor injuries at the Royal United Hospital, Bath.

The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM), a road safety charity, is warning people all over Somerset about the dangers of driving in Autumn weather.

Peter Rodger is IAM's chief examiner and urged drivers to take extra care, particularly driving in the mornings:

"Remember that leaves can be slippery, especially when wet, so avoid hard acceleration or braking as it can cause skidding," he said.

"Be aware that there may be a dip, pothole or other road hazard hiding under the leaves covering the road, and hold the wheel firmly if you must drive over them."
