A woman was seriously injured after a car crashed into a tree in St Albans yesterday.

At about 10.40am, the East of England Ambulance Service, the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance , Herts police, and Herts Fire and Rescue Service rushed to reports of a collision on Toulmin Drive.

It was reported that seven people were inside the three-door blue Vauxhall Corsa when it smashed into a tree - leaving the bonnet crumbled and some of the people involved with life changing injuries.
