THE A10 London Road has now reopened after an incident which saw a trailer topple over, shedding its load of hay bails.
The incident occurred at about 1.45pm today. The trailer, which was being pulled by a tractor, fell as it was going round the corner near the Chequers pub in Royston.
It fell onto a car, a grey 4x4, spilling the hay all over the road.
The driver of the 4x4 managed to free himself before paramedics arrived.
Gary Sanderson, from the East of England Ambulance service, said: “A man who was driving past in a car was struck by falling bales of hay, trapping him against a house.
