A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “As a 999 call was coming in to report the crash a passing ambulance came across the incident.

“The car that was on its side had to be stabilised by the fire service and the driver, a woman in her seventies, received initial treatment whilst still inside it.

“She was then freed from the car and treated for a shoulder injury before being taken by land ambulance to Hereford County Hospital.

“The woman was trapped in the car for around one hour.”
