Emergency services cut a woman free after she crashed a car through the wall of the Cooloongup Medical Centre on Saturday.

About 3:49pm, the woman, in her eighties, is believed to have put her foot on the accelerator instead of the brake which caused the Ford Falcon to crash through a wall of the medical centre. 

St John paramedics stabilised the trapped woman while firefighters worked to cut her free through the back window.
