Two men were taken to hospital after the car they were in flipped over after hitting two parked cars in Mansfield.

Firefighters had to cut the men free from the overturned vehicle on Big Barn Lane yesterday at 5pm.

The men’s injuries are understood to not be life threatening.

Big Barn Lane was closed from its junction with Eakring Road and Ling Forest Road while the emergency services dealt with the incident.

The Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance was also called to the scene, landing in a garden close to where the crash happened.

Firecrews from Mansfield and Blidworth used hydraulic cutting gear to free the men.

Mansfield watch manger Darren Warner said: “The men were both wearing their seatbelts when the car landed on its roof, so they escaped with what looked like cuts and bruises.

“They were very lucky it was not more serious.”

East Midlands Ambulance Service took the men to King’s Mill Hospital.
