A north Norfolk road has reopened after an elderly woman had a serious collision in Roughton.
Thorpe Market Road is now open again in both directions after the crash, which happened around 3pm today (Tuesday, May 29).
A black Ford Kuga SUV travelling south left the road and smashed into a low brick wall at the front of a property.
It was earlier believed the vehicle flipped onto its roof, however, this was not the case.
A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said a woman in her 70s was injured and had to be rescued from the vehicle by Norfolk Fire and Rescue.
