A MAN had to be cut out of his car after he collided with another vehicle outside Northbrook College this morning (Tuesday, February 21).

Three fire crews attended to the accident, which occurred between two cars at the junction of Broadwater Road and Carnegie Road, at 7.15am.

Firefighters cut the roof off one car to release the trapped male driver, after he was complaining of severe neck pains.

The driver was carried out of the vehicle with the use of a spinal board, and was taken to Worthing Hospital as a precaution. His injuries are not life-threatening.

The second driver escaped the accident with only a few cuts and bruises.

Broadwater Road has now been fully cleared, after firefighters left the scene after around 30 minutes.
