A driver escaped serious injury when a people carrier flipped over on a rural road close to the border between Norfolk and Suffolk.
Emergency services were called to the crash on Church Lane in Homersfield, near Harleston, at 11.50am today (March 20).
The Renault Trafic vehicle completely overturned on to its roof close to the junction between Church Lane and the B1062.
The driver was the only occupant at the time of the crash and was injured. The single carriageway road was blocked and remained closed until after 2pm while the vehicle was removed.
Firefighters from Harleston were called in to deal with an oil spill.
Motorists were diverted on an alternative route to the village on Back Lane while the road closure was in place.
