A car bonnet was left crumpled in a Harpenden car accident this weekend.
The driver was a woman in her 80s, who lost control of her car and smashed into some steps by a shop on Station Road on July 22, at about 2pm.
No-one else was injured apart from the driver, who’s condition was not life threatening or serious.
However, the force of impact did break the windscreen and concave the bonnet.
Staff from the shop and pub opposite the steps cared for her while an East of England Ambulance arrived, when she was taken to Luton and Dunstable Hospital for further care.

A witness to the crash said he believes the driver was concussed: “This could have been much worse had someone been entering or leaving the shop at the time and again highlights the risks of elderly drivers on the roads, following a number of similar incidents in and around Harpenden in the past few years.”
There was a separate incident in St Albans on Coopers Green Lane on Monday (July 24) at about 7am.
