Ute flips over in central city
A man had to be cut free from a ute after it flipped over in central Christchurch today.
The two-car collision happened at the corner of Fitzgerald Ave and Hereford St about 11.30am.
The man is now in a stable condition at Christchurch Hospital, a hospital spokesman said.
Witness Johnny Carter said the ute and a car crashed in the middle of the intersection.
The ute rolled several times before sliding about 30 metres on its roof, he said.
"[It was] very, very scary stuff. [I'm] still shaking," he said.
