A woman was cut free from her car after it overturned in a smash on Wolverhampton’s ring road today.
The crash happened at the junction of Ring Road St John’s and Snow Hill at 11.10am, causing delays and leading to diversions for drivers.
A silver Peugeot landed on its roof following the collision, which also damaged a blue Honda.
Smashed glass, debris and a loose wheel littered the road as firefighters from Wolverhampton and Tettenhall fire stations worked to free the woman.
She was taken to hospital but her injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
Two other people involved in the crash were checked over by ambulance crews as a precautionary measure.
Police closed two lanes of the Ring Road and were directing traffic along Dudley Road.
The junction of Snow Hill and the Ring Road was also closed.
The smash happened just two hours after a five-car collision on the same stretch of road just yards away opposite St John’s Church at 9am.
Two people were taken to hospital following the crash.
A private hire cab and black Audi A3 were damaged in the collision which blocked one of the lanes to the carriageway heading towards the Dudley Road junction.
Police and paramedics were on the scene and two people involved in the crash were taken to New Cross Hospital as a precaution.
Claire Brown, spokeswoman for West Midlands Ambulance Service, said: “We received the call at 9am to a collision involving five vehicles.
"There was one ambulance and a paramedic in attendance and two patients were conveyed to New Cross Hospital following the accident.”
