Rescue tools used to free man from car

Firefighters freed a 30-year-old man from his car after it rolled off the road and down an embankment in Acton early on Monday. Hydraulic rescue tools were used to help free the trapped man from a Honda Accord, after emergency services were called to the crash on Parkes Way near Clunies Ross Street about 5.15am. A 26-year-old man was also assessed by ACT Ambulance Service intensive care paramedics at the scene. Both men were treated for minor facial injuries and taken to Canberra Hospital.
