Police, fire and ambulance called after car gets wedged into St James' Park estate sign

Two people escaped injury when their car left the road and crashed into a developer's sign for the 750-home St James' Park estate being built on the outskirts of Bishop's Stortford.

Members of all three emergency services were called to the scene on the A1184 St James Way on Easter Sunday (April 4) at around 3.15pm.

A spokeswoman for Hertfordshire police said: "It was reported that a Suzuki Alto had left the carriageway at the junction with Thorley Street and come to rest on a grass bank.

"Officers attended, alongside colleagues from the fire [and rescue] and ambulance services, and road closures were put in place.

"The driver and passenger were checked over by the ambulance service but were not injured. The vehicle was recovered and the scene was clear by 5.10pm."

A passenger in a passing car told the Indie: "There was a white car up the bank, wedged under the sign for the new [St James' Park] development. It looked very strange.

"The road was blocked and there were several fire engines and an ambulance. Emergency personnel were gathered around the car at the top of the bank."
