IT is hard to believe from this astonishing picture that the occupants of this van escaped without serious injury.

But both were able to free themselves from the wreckage unaided before firefighters arrived to help them.

The van closed the B4214 at Staplow between Ledbury and Bromyard for a time on Friday (February 7).

It is not known what caused the crash, or if any other vehicles were involved.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said a man who was a passenger in the van was treated for minor injuries and taken to Hereford County Hospital.
