Man trapped in crashed car
A man was cut from the wreckage of a vehicle in Hamilton this afternoon after crashing through a steel sculpture erected on Mill St for the V8 supercar races.
There was applause from an audience that had gathered after emergency services successfully cut the man from the heavily damaged Honda hatchback.
Clarke Kurei, who witnessed the crash, said he saw the vehicle cross the centre line and smash into the sculpture.
"He just wiped out and smashed everything in his way," he said.
