THE driver of a car that flipped onto its roof is said to have walked away without serious injury.

The Vauxhall Corsa was heading along Owton Manor Lane, near Jameson Road, in Hartlepool, when the vehicle overturned.

It happened shortly before 8am today and saw the road closed as emergency services dealt with the incident.

A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: “A vehicle has ended up on its roof. There was only one vehicle involved and no serious injuries were reported.”

There were slippery conditions this morning caused by a heavy overnight frost.

Temperatures are expected to remain the same over the coming days, with a risk of more freezing conditions going into Sunday and Monday.
