Woman injured in Barnstaple crash

The B3232 road at Eastacombe Cross near Roundswell in Barnstaple was closed for more than one-and-a-half hours last night (Tuesday) following an accident involving two cars.

They were a blue Vauxhall Astra registered to a Barnstaple owner and a silver Volkeswagen from Torrington.

Both vehicles were driven by women, one of whom was treated at the scene by South Western Ambulance Service paramedics for a back injury and was taken to the North Devon District Hospital.

The incident was first reported at 10.05 pm and the road closed for the recovery of the vehicles and re-opened again at 11.45pm.
