Two people were put on stretchers and taken to hospital yesterday with back and neck injuries after a crash in a village near Hitchin.
The smash happened at around 2.45pm in Barton Road, Hexton, which left the road blocked.
A Jaguar and a Range Rover were involved in the incident which led to two ambulances attending the scene, and the road was reopened just after 4.30pm.
An eyewitness told the Comet: “It happened right outside Hexton JMI School on the B655.
“Thankfully no-one was fatally injured but I saw at least two occupants being stretchered away onto ambulances.
“Both vehicles clipped one another with the Range Rover flipping onto its roof before coming to a standstill across the carriageway.
“The Jaguar – minus a wheel – continued for a way until it collided with a hedge.”
