A pensioner has been injured after his Land Rover rolled onto its side and into a hedge.

The driver, who is believed to be in his 70s, was hurt after the crash in Low Road, Drayton, at about 2.43pm today.

An ambulance service spokesman said he had suffered minor injuries, and might be taken to hospital.

The crash is causing severe delays on the A1067 both ways at Low Road.


  • Betty, I don't think for one moment that they do.

  • what is the problem with driving at 35-40 on a 50-60 mile an hour road? the limit is there as a legal maximum limit not a limit you have to drive at all the time. if it makes you late for an appointment because you had to follow someone going at a speed slower than you want, then to I suggest you should leave homework earlier. I suppose if you got a puncture and was late you would want to blame the person who dropped the nail for making you late.

  • stevejo I agree with what you said. There are so many older drivers with bad eyesight and slow reactions. Some who are very unsteady and can hardly walk on their legs and have trouble getting into their cars but then just drive away. Then there are those that drive at 35 - 40 mph on the 50 or 60 mph limit roads holding up other drivers or sometimes causing other drivers to take risks in overtaking.

  • Time to ban these OAP's who cause a danger to the public every day with their motor vehicles, just glad this wasn't a head-on collision where an innocent party was injured. Compulsory re-testing at 65 including an enhanced eyesight and hazard perception test should be implemented.

  • How do you know there was something wrong with this chap's eyesight or that the mere fact that he's elderly contributed to the accident?

  • There are also many younger drivers with sheer impatience which cause far more collisions. Like the Ford Transit driver who overtook me on that road in Hellesdon at a junction on Saturday because I was doing the speed limit of 30mph. He clearly was not elderly and ended u in front of me at the Dereham Road junction. Oh and it was not causing SEVERE delays as I was not delayede when I went past Low Road on he A1067 with no problem.
