BMW driver loses control of 4x4 in Stevenage school car park
EMERGENCY services were called to a Stevenage school this afternoon after a 4x4 vehicle crash through a fence, went down an embankment in the school grounds and came to rest close to a classroom.
One eyewitness said the silver BMW X5 came to rest very close to a classroom with children inside at Ashtree Primary School and Nursery, in Chertsey Rise.
A red parked car was also damaged during the crash, which occured shortly after 3pm as children were about to leave.
A member of staff at the school confirmed there had been an incident but no children or staff had been injured and all the children had now left the premises and gone home.
A fire service spokesman said firefighters from Stevenage remained at the scene and three people had received first aid.
