 Rescuers have work frantically to free a man trapped following a car crash in Rockingham this morning. The man, 94, was pinned underneath his car after a second car, driven by his granddaughter, collided with his vehicle.

Police say it’s understood the accident occurred when the man was helping direct his granddaughter into a parking bay at a library on Dixon Road, near the intersection of Patterson Road, when she mistakenly hit the accelerator and pinning his arm underneath his car.
