A car flipped onto its side, crashing into a tree, in a residential street.

Police came across a crashed white Volkswagen Polo in Sheepcot Lane while out on patrol just before midday today (Wednesday).

The driver, a woman, was seen to by paramedics who were called to the scene and she was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Photos show glass from the windows of the Polo shattered all over the road and the airbags deployed.

Harrow Times:

A tree was also badly damaged, and left leaning precariously over the pavement.

The road was shut for a period of time to allow the Polo to be recovered.

The street is now clear.
