Flipped car causes traffic chaos

An overturned 4x4 left a driver in hospital and chaos on the roads in Stevenage last night (Thursday).

Traffic backed up around junction 8 of the A1(M) after a white Land Rover Defender crashed on the A602 heading towards Hitchin.

Ambulance and fire crews were called at around 6.30pm to the incident while police closed the A602 westwards and the motorway junction.

The driver, a Dunstable woman in her 20s, was taken to Lister Hospital with minor injuries. No-one else was involved.

The road closures were lifted shortly after 8pm.
