The Ford Fiesta – heading down the A507 North Road – left the carriageway for reasons that are not yet clear at about 9pm, smashing into the side of the house.

Police, paramedics and Baldock and Stevenage firefighters rushed to the scene and released the driver and passenger from the overturned vehicle, in which they had been trapped.

The ambulance service treated two patients at the scene, one with a suspected hand and arm injury and the other with a suspected head and back injury.

Both were taken to Stevenage’s Lister Hospital for further care.
