A car crash in Letchworth on Thursday saw a woman taken to hospital after receiving head injuries and a speed camera damaged.

Police were called at 1.10pm to Baldock Road after a blue Nissan collided with a speed camera.

The female driver was taken to the Lister Hospital in Stevenage but was conscious and breathing with a non-life threatening injury.

A passer-by told the Comet: “It goes without saying I hope the person involved in the crash is OK – but as a motorist there is a certain schadenfreude in seeing a broken speed camera.”

A police spokesman confirmed their Safety Camera Unit has been informed of the damage to the speed camera.
