No other vehicles were involved and the driver, a woman, sustained bruising but no other injuries.

While recovery work was going on, a blue Ford Fiesta flipped nearby at around 8.40am with fears a woman was trapped inside leading to calls for firefighters to attend.

The woman managed to free herself and was treated at the scene for minor injuries but did not require hospital treatment, an ambulance service spokesman said.
