A MAN had to be cut out of his car by firemen after he came off the road in the Scottish Borders.
A fire crew used hydraulic cutting equipment to free the man after the crash on Saturday night, and he was taken to hospital with a shoulder injury.
His 20-year-old female passenger also suffered minor injuries in the accident near Choicelee Farm, Berwickshire, but she had managed to make her own way out of the vehicle.
Both were taken by ambulance to Borders General Hospital to be checked over.
A spokesman from Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue said: “We were called to a road traffic accident on the A6105 at around 6.20pm on Saturday.
“A male driver had to be freed from the vehicle, but his female passenger had managed to get out herself.
“Scottish Ambulance took the pair to Borders General Hospital, the man with a shoulder injury and the woman with a suspected chest injury.”
