A driver was injured and taken to hospital after her vehicle rolled 20 metres down an embankment before landing on all four wheels near Welshpool.

Emergency services rushed to help the woman after her vehicle left the A458 trunk road near Castle Caereinion on Thursday morning (February 22).

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service said its Welshpool crew members found the injured woman out of the vehicle when they arrived at the scene shortly after 8.40am, and then carried her to a waiting ambulance.


A spokesperson for the rescue service said: “Crew members responded to a road traffic collision involving one private motor vehicle which had left the roadway and rolled approximately 20m down an embankment, landing on all four wheels.

“Crew members assisted with making the vehicle and scene safe and utilised one hose reel jet to clear small amounts of debris and fuel, one thermal imaging camera, edraulic spreaders, small gear and one triple-extension ladder. The crew left the scene at 9.59am.”

Dyfed-Powys Police said the single-vehicle road traffic collision did not close the road while emergency services were at the scene and the vehicle was recovered.
