MFB rescued three women after their car plunged into a worksite in Flemington this morning.

Crews were called to the intersection of Ascot Vale and Racecourse roads about 2.30am.

Upon arrival, it was found that the vehicle, containing three women, appeared to misjudge the corner of Ascot Vale Road and Racecourse Road and drove through a plywood barrier wall that surrounded a building under construction.

The car had driven straight through the barrier wall and landed onto its roof on the concrete floor approximately 30 metres below the level of the road. Amazingly, two of the passengers walked out of the vehicle unassisted; however, the driver suffered more serious injuries.

MFB High Angle Rescue operators, in partnership with Ambulance Victoria paramedics, worked to bring the driver on a stretcher safely up to the ground level.

Once the patient was at ground level, AV quickly placed her in an ambulance and transported her to hospital.

Police wish to speak to anyone who witnessed the crash or who saw the Honda prior to the incident.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
