Accident on A500 northbound causes rush-hour congestion
A WOMAN had a lucky escape on the A500 this morning after the car she was driving overturned.
The car was turned on to its side on a crash barrier at around 6.30am, causing both lanes of the northbound carriageway to close between the Wolstanton Retail Park and Porthill Bank.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a car that had come to rest on the driver’s side on the crash barrier with fuel leaking from it.
“The only occupant, a woman who was about 40, was initially trapped but after being extricated was found to have only suffered minor back injuries."
