“I don’t think anyone was too badly injured as I only saw a man, who I think was the driver, with a bandage on his hand and there didn’t appear to be anyone else involved. “

“The car was in pieces however, someone mentioned it was worth around £30,000 but they would struggle to get even £1,000 for the condition it is in now.”

Lincolnshire Police said: “We were called to a single vehicle collision in Horncastle Road, Louth at around 11.30am. A Ford Escort was found on its roof and emergency services were called to the scene.

“The vehicle was leaking onto the road, which was blocked. It was reopened around 1:45 p.m. after the vehicle was recovered. It was a collision with minor injuries.”
