A shaken woman clambered from her car after it flipped on to its side and skidded along a pavement before smashing into a boulder and a garden wall at an accident blackspot today.
The motorist, who was treated for shock by West Midlands Ambulance Service, was driving a Ford Ka, on Oldnall Road, Wollescote, Stourbridge, at about 7am when the incident happened.
It came just a week after another driver escaped unhurt when their Renault Clio hit a kerb on the street before smashing through a fence and rolling over on to a parked car in the front driveway of a house.
Stourbridge firefighter Steve Hodgetts said that, in today’s accident, the car, which was travelling from the Colley Gate direction, flipped on to its side, travelled along the pavement, hit a wall and then turned back on to its wheels.
“The girl driving the car was suffering from shock but not otherwise hurt,” said Mr Hodgetts.
“The road was greasy and damp and it was a cold, misty morning.
“We have mentioned to the council and police before that something needs to be done about the road because local farmers have also been complaining about cars going into their fields along there as well.”
The road was closed for a time after the crash. Meanwhile drivers faced delays during rush hour today after a car ended up in the central reservation of a busy dual carriageway in Walsall.
Police were called to The Keyway, near to the M6 motorway at junction 10 for Walsall, after reports were received that a car had gone into the central reservation at about 8.50am.
The accident blocked one lane of the carriageway. The male driver was able to get out of the vehicle himself and is not believed to have been injured.
