Car flip trio escape serious injury
THREE elderly people escaped without serious injuries when the car they were in overturned on Teignmouth Road in Torquay.
The accident happened just past Moor Lane on the B3199 at 2.20pm last Friday.
The car is thought to have collided with a lamp-post. There was a lot of debris and fuel at the site which meant the road had to stay closed for more than three hours awaiting recovery of the car and to clear the area.
The vehicle, which was registered to the Isle of Wight, had three people inside it. Firefighters were called as two of the passengers were trapped in the vehicle and to help make the scene safe.
