THE driver of this car that flipped onto its roof walked away unharmed.

A motorist walked away unscathed from an incident that left a Seat Ibiza on its roof.

Emergency services were called to Oxford Road, Hartlepool, at around noon yesterday.

Police, a fire crew and paramedics attended the scene, but the driver of the car did not require any medical attention.

It came after emergency services rushed to Blakelock Road, in Hartlepool, on Saturday after a collision between two vehicles.

The road was closed for more than two hours while the debris was cleared.

Paramedics attended the scene at around 4pm on Saturday and one driver was taken to the University Hospital of North Tees, in Stockton, with head injuries, which were described as “not serious”.
