Car goes 40 ft down A414 embankment
A man has been taken to hospital after his car went 40ft (12m) down an embankment following a collision on the A414 at 8.50am today (Tuesday April 5).
Emergency services - including the air ambulance - were called after two vehicles - a Honda Civic and a Peugeot 106 - were in collision between Hertford and Cole Green.
The man has been taken to the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital in Welwyn Garden City and a woman, whose car remained on the road, was also taken there.
Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson, who attended the incident said: “One of the cars involved had left the carriageway and ended up on its side approximately 40 feet down an embankment in a wooded area. The man driving was trapped inside.”
Paramedics and the doctor and critical care paramedic from the air ambulance worked closely with the fire service to treat, stabilise and immobilise the man before he was taken to hospital.
Herts police were called to the scene and three fire crews were called out - two from Hertford and one from Welwyn Garden City.
