A driver has been rushed to hospital for “precautionary checks” after flipping their car onto its roof on a quiet Fenland road.
Seadyke Bank in Murrow was forced shut following the single-vehicle crash on Tuesday, August 25 due to a large oil spill as a result of the accident.
Dramatic pictures from the scene show the blue Vauxhall Corsa upside down in a pool of oil and smashed glass – along with grass and debris.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: “Following an RTC, we had to close Seadyke Bank in Murrow due to a large oil spill across the road.
“The road was closed for the safety of road users due to a deep water-filled dyke running next to it.
