Emergency crews attended a single-vehicle crash at Golden Vale Road in Sutton Forest on Friday night.

SES, police, ambulance and Rural Fire Service crews arrived on the scene at 6.53pm on September 15, and attended for about an hour.

SES crews stablised the vehicle and removed the rear door and B pillar of the vehicle.

Paramedics removed a female driver from the car.

The driver sustained injuries from the accident, and left the scene by ambulance.

SES Wingecarribee controller Warren Turner said the number of call-outs to Golden Vale Road was “above average” for SES crews.

“I’ve been here for 18 months, and I’ve been called out [to Golden Vale Road] four times. It’s above average,” Mr Turner said.

There was also a minor single-vehicle crash an hour earlier nearby at Belanglo Road on September 15.

According to police the car rolled over when the driver over-corrected and lost traction.

The driver was trapped in the vehicle, and was freed by emergency crews, which attended the scene at 5.50pm.

The motorist did not sustain any injuries from the crash.

Concerns were raised at council about the safety of the Golden Vale Road and Hume Highway intersection earlier this year.

This came after a fatal accident at the intersection in July this year, which claimed the lives of Highlands women Berlio O’Brien and Gabrielle Stewart.
