St Andrews Road had to be closed yesterday after a three car crash.

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.
