Police said the blue Citroen C3 went off the Norwich-bound single carriageway section of the road outside Oak Farm, North Tuddenham, near Dereham, at about 2.20pm.

A female casualty was helped out of the car by a fire crew from Dereham. She was taken to hospital with back injuries which were not believed to be serious.

The road was partially blocked and motorists faced tailbacks for around two hours after the crash.

  • It was my sister in the crash, she wants to thank everyone that helped her, especially the drivers who stopped and helped to pull her out. Thanks also to the emergency services and hospital staff! And sorry for the 2 hour delays!! She was very lucky, just concussion and bruising.

  • i think you will find the original report came from a reporter phoning the local police and asking if they had any reports and it would have reported whatever was said to them thats how it used to work. @will , glad your sister is ok
