A CAR was almost cut in half when it crashed into a pole outside Frankston Hospital in wet conditions, early Tuesday (2 August) morning.

A man was driving the Ford sedan with two female passengers when it skidded off Davey St, 5.30am.

Frankston SES incident controller Philip Holt said the man had managed to get free by the time rescue crews arrived. He said his crew took an hour using a hand winch to prise the car from the pole to rescue the trapped passengers.

“It was a good effort because there had been significant impact and a power line was down,” he said.

The front seat passenger was airlifted to The Alfred hospital and the backseat passenger and driver were taken straight into Frankston Hospital.

Frankston CFA and ambulance officers attended.
