An 18-year-old Nelson woman was pinned beneath a four-wheel-drive vehicle that went off the highway north of Nelson Sunday night.
Nelson Fire Service crew did an outstanding job in extricating the woman in a delicate and difficult job, said St John Ambulance operations team leader Matt Wilkinson.
The accident happened about 9pm on the Gentle Annie hill.
The woman had moderate hand and leg injuries and was taken to Nelson Hospital. Others in the vehicle escaped uninjured.
