A teenage girl escaped with just cuts and bruises after her car hit the central reservation on the A41 last night.

Fire crews were called out at 5.42pm after receiving initial reports of people trapped inside a car that was upside down on the dual carriageway, but they arrived on the scene to find that wasn’t the case.

The East of England Ambulance Service’s Richard Dunne said: “We treated a 19-year-old female at the scene. She was what we term as the walking wounded, and she was discharged without having to go to hospital.”

It is believed the car clipped the central reservation before slipping over to the embankment on the stretch of road between the Chesham Road and Bourne End Lane junctions.

Two engines from Hemel Hempstead and one from Berkhamsted were sent to the scene along with a rapid response vehicle and an ambulance and the incident was dealt with by 6.04pm.
