Pictures show the vehicle end up on the bonnet of another car parked in a driveway and severe damage to a garden fence.

John Dyne was on his way out for a coffee when he drove past the crash just after 8am.

He said: “There’s quite a sharp double bend. It’s probably 40ft away from the road. It’s gone flying.”

Police said officers attended the crash at about 7am and closed one lane of the road.

A man, who was driving the car, suffered a minor head injury, officers added.

UK Power Networks have been called to assess the damage to the electricity pole.
