Teenager is airlifted to children’s hospital after ‘really serious incident’ on Congleton road

A teenage boy had to be freed from underneath a Vauxhall Astra following at collision at Monks Heath on Thursday.

Shortly before noon, firefighters from Bollington and Wilmslow were called to the scene of a collision on Chelford Road in Nether Alderley.

Firefighters released the teenage boy and he was taken to Manchester Children’s Hospital. His injures were not believed to be life threatening.

The crews also used specialist equipment to release a woman from the Ford.
Firefighters used absorbent pads to soak up a small fuel leak at the scene. The road was still closed on Friday.

Sgt Rob Simpson, of Cheshire Police Rural Crime Team, posted photos of the crash on social media, with the comment: “Today, PCSO Graham and I attended at this two-vehicle collision on the A537 Chelford Road near Monks Heath, supporting Macclesfield Police. A really serious incident with Wilmslow Fire Station and Bollington Fire Station helping North West Ambulance Service to safely extract a casualty from one of the vehicles.

“Medics from the charity The Air Ambulance Service landed nearby to assist, too, in one of their new helicopters. The ultimate in teamwork!

“Thank you to all the people caught up in the traffic for your patience.”
