The collision led to a road in north Lowestoft being closed as the Dacia Duster car was perilously positioned on its side.

Three fire crews, police and the East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST) were all called out following the crash in Hollingsworth Road, Lowestoft at about 7.45am this morning, which involved a Beach Radio vehicle.

The Dacia crashed into a Volkswagen Polo and a Volkswagen Sharan, which were both unoccupied and then rolled over onto its side – but amazingly the female driver, believed to be in her 20s, freed herself from the vehicle and suffered 'minor injuries.'

The road was closed at the junction with Montgomery Avenue as the scene was cleared and the car was recovered.
