A Mercedes-Benz ended up on its side in a crash in a narrow town centre street.

The car’s occupant suffered cuts to her arm and Melbourne Road in Sheringham was temporarily blocked after the two-vehicle incident, which took place just after 11am today (Wednesday, March 20).

Norfolk Fire and Rescue crews from Sheringham and Cromer stations rushed to the scene, and they got the woman out of the car using heavy rescue equipment. Her injuries were minor.

Norfolk police were also there. A spokesman said the Mercedes’ occupant and the driver of a the other vehicle involved exchanged details. The ambulance service was also called in.

Royston Young, who runs Roy Boys cafe in Station Road around the corner, said: “We heard a loud bang and went outside and saw the car on its side.”

An ambulance trust spokesperson said: “We responded to a report of a person in an over-turned car on Melbourne Road, Sheringham around 11am this morning. A rapid response vehicle attended and a senior paramedic treated a woman for minor injuries at the scene.”
