This is the wrecked car that a woman driver miraculously escaped from with non-life threatening injuries on the A505 between Baldock and Royston this morning.

The East of England Ambulance Service was called to the A505 near to the Ashwell junction at 8.08. Ambulance crews from Letchworth attended the scene. An air ambulance was also alerted and attended the incident.

Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson, who attended the incident said: "Fortunately one of our paramedics who was travelling to work came across the collision and gave immediate aid to the trapped casualty. The car was on its side and wrapped around a tree in a wooded area off the road.

"The woman believed to be 22 and from Letchworth was taken by land ambulance to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge with non-life threatening injuries.
