A young woman escaped serious injury when the car she was driving overturned after colliding with two stationary vehicles.
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.
A fire crew from north Lowestoft and two crews from Lowestoft South attended the scene, and a brigade spokesman said the crews had left by just after 8am.
A spokesman for EEAST said: 'We received a call today at 7.50am to reports of a collision on Hollingsworth Road in Lowestoft.

'We sent an ambulance crew to assist who were on scene within three minutes to treat a woman, believed to be in her 20s, for minor injuries. She was left in the care of her family as she did not require any hospital treatment.'
A police spokesman said that there will be no police action against the driver, and the road was reopened by 9.16am.
