A section of roadway was closed to vehicular traffic last night, following another single vehicle collision involving an overturned car that burst into flames after the impact.

Police say the accident occurred on Middle Road, near the junction with Store Hill in Smith’s Parish.

Details were limited when the post was published via social media shortly after 10pm on Sunday (June 9).

But a police spokesman said: “It is understood a motorcar travelling east collided with a wall, overturned and landed on its side, before it caught on fire.”

Traffic travelling east on Middle Road was diverted onto Hermitage Road, Devonshire.

Traffic heading west on Middle Road was diverted onto Store Hill at the junction with Middle Road, Smith’s.
