Driver seriously injured in Stevenage smash

A man was seriously injured yesterday (Sunday) when the high-powered car he was driving smashed through the central reservation of a Stevenage dual carriageway and rolled over into the opposite lanes.

The blue BMW 3 Series was travelling on the northbound carriageway of Gunnels Wood Road when the accident happened shortly before 7.30am.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service, which treated the 23-year-old Stevenage driver at the scene, said he was taken to Lister Hospital with serious leg injuries. He remains there in a stable condition.

Due to the impact of the collision the southbound carriageway between Fairlands Way and Six Hills Way was closed while Herts Highways Agency carried out essential repairs. It reopened at 3.30pm.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw the crash to get in touch. Sergeant Sam Cordingley from the roads policing unit said: “I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed this collision as they may have some vital information which could help us with our enquiries.”
