A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust said: “A woman, believed to be in her 60s, was treated for a serious leg injury, and chest injuries – which were not as serious. Her injuries were not life-threatening, but she was suffering from a suspected broken leg.
“She was taken by land ambulance to Watford General Hospital for further treatment, accompanied by doctors from the air ambulance.”
A Herts Police spokeswoman explained that the two-vehicle collision occurred at the road’s junction with Tollgate Road in the village.
