The San Miguel fire-fighters were the first on the scene and had to carefully cut the woman free from the car, whilst being careful not to make a suspected neck injury worse, and treated the young girl in the road before paramedics arrived to take over.
After initial assessment, the man and the 4 year old girl were taken by ambulance to Hospiten Sur in Playa Las Americas for further treatment, while the woman was transferred to the Quirón Costa Adeje Hospital in San Eugenio for treatment to her neck.
Fire-fighters and police were then on hand to clear the scene, commenting that the occupants of the vehicles were lucky to be alive.
