The incident happened in Avenue One, Letchworth GC, on Saturday night when the driver lost control of the Honda Civic, collided with the kerb and flipped over, say police.

The car crashed through a fence and came to rest on its roof in undergrowth.

Firefighters had to cut two passengers free from the rear of the vehicle and they were taken to Lister Hospital for treatment.
