Two women taken to hospital but police say injuries are thought to be superficial.

Two women were taken to hospital after a car came off the North Devon Link Road between Tiverton and South Molton on Friday.

Police said their injuries were believed to have been superficial. Another casualty, a 33-year-old man, was treated by paramedics at the scene following the 5.15pm incident.
