Four cars crashed on a road which was covered in black ice in south Norfolk this morning following a night of freezing conditions.
Police were called to Crownthorpe at approximately 8am following the crashes at junction of Green Lane and Hospital road.
Three of the accidents, which all happened within 100 metres of each other, saw the cars end up in ditches and bushes.
Another vehicle then rolled and collided with one of the crashed cars.
The cars involved were two black Ford Fiestas, a blue Ford Fiesta and a white Renault Kangoo.
