There was a collision on Sandringham Crescent in St Albans this morning between a car and a van.

Police were called at 7.26am following a crash involving a Ford Transit and a blue Audi TT.

The road was closed in the Fields Close area due to an oil spillage and because both vehicles needed to be recovered.

An ambulance was called and a crew and rapid response vehicle were sent to help.

East of England Ambulance Service treated a patient at the scene before taking them to Watford General Hospital, as they had minor injuries.
