A 36-YEAR-OLD woman had to be cut free by firefighters after her car crashed into a wall and ended up on its roof on the A360 between Devizes and Potterne at 11.15am on Thursday.

The local woman, who has not been named, was taken by ambulance to Salisbury District Hospital where she was released after treatment for minor injuries.

It is believed she may have collapsed at the wheel because of a medical condition.

No other vehicle was involved in the accident. The road was closed for two hours for crash investigators to examine the scene.

Clyde Hoddinott, chairman of Potterne Parish Council, said: "This is not an accident black spot. It is a fairly straight piece of road and no worse than a lot of places in the area.

"But we have been concerned for some time about how to slow traffic at the approaches to the village. We have approached the county council for flashing signs to urge motorists to slow down.

"But Potterne doesn't meet the accident criteria for the erection of these signs.

"The parish council has raised the finance for traffic calming but so far we have had no response from the county council."
