POLICE are appealing for witnesses following a head-on crash which left two drivers trapped in their cars and badly injured.
The accident happened at about 5.30pm last Thursday evening when a silver Daewoo Lanos driven by a 43-year-old man from St Albans, was in collision with a blue Rover 620 driven by a 28-year-old man from Smallford.
The cars crashed on a bend by the gravel pit in Sandpit Lane between St Albans and Smallford. Police closed the road between the Coopers Green Lane junction and the Smallford roundabout while fire crews worked to cut the men free.
A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said they sent two ambulances and a doctor to the accident.
