A main road in Northampton had to be closed for close to four hours after a three-car collision left a woman needing hospital treatment.

Police were called to St Andrews Road at 5.30pm last night (Wednesday) after three cars collided directly behind Northampton Railway Station.

A team of fire-fighters had to cut the roof off a BMW involved in the crash, as the driver was trapped inside.

The woman driving the car had to be taken to Northampton General Hospital, though a police spokeswoman said her injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

The other people involved in the crash left the scene of their own accord.

St Andrews Road was closed until 9.10pm while the vehicles were recovered.
