A FEMALE driver was taken to hospital after colliding with a tree in Alvechurch yesterday evening (Tuesday March 12).

An ambulance was sent out after reports of a car on its roof at The Holloway at around 5.30pm.

Two fire crews were also called to the incident.

The driver managed to free herself from the car before the emergency services arrived, and no one was trapped in the vehicle.

The woman was treated on the scene for injuries not believed to be serious, and was later taken to Alexandra Hospital.
