A car has rolled on the A505 on the western edge of Hitchin this morning, with the driver trapped inside.

Emergency crews are on the scene in Offley Road, on the A505 stretch coming into Hitchin from Luton – which remains closed.

Police said they were called at 8.10am and that the crash involved a white Toyota MR2 Coupe, whose male driver was trapped inside. The incident happened near a broken-down grey Peugeot 107 in a live lane.

A force spokesman said the road was closed and that paramedics had been called. Recovery arrived for the Toyota just after 9.20am.

A spokesman for the ambulance service said an ambulance, two ambulance officers and a rapid response vehicle had been sent to the scene and treated a man for minor injuries. He was discharged at the scene and did not require hospital treatment.
