A WOMAN walked away uninjured from a serious car crash in Stratton this afternoon.

All emergency services were called to the scene of a car crash in Stratton, Cirencester at about 4pm.

The car, a Vauxhall Meriva, had smashed into a parked car and turned on its side.

Fire fighters had to cut the roof off the car to free the women, in her mid-thirties, from inside.

Cirencester police Sergeant Gary Eagger said the driver suffered no injuries from the crash.

“She is fine and will not even be going to hospital,” said Sgt Eagger. “The doctor has seen her and said she is alright.”

Police cars, two fire engines, an ambulance and an air ambulance attended the scene on Cheltenham Road, just between Park View and Roberts Close.

Worried Cheltenham Road residents spoke about their fears of the busy stretch of road leading from Cirencester to Cheltenham.

“When cars are parked on the side of the road, I have to pull out in the middle of the road from my drive to see what’s coming,” said June Prosser-Vane. “How I miss the cars sometimes, I don’t know.”

Police said the road would re-open as soon as possible.
