Three male passengers are reported to have escaped injury today when the car in which they were travelling struck a tree on Windsor Road, Penarth.
All three managed to extricate themselves from the vehicle and bystanders say none of them appeared to be injured.
A South Wales Fire and Rescue team from Penarth Fire Station were on the scene in minutes to provide first aid and check for fuel spillage. It’s not known whether the accident was weather-related.
One eyewitness said that a Vale of Glamorgan Civil Enforcement Officer was also in attendance at the scene and appended a parking ticket to the car – which had crashed on a double-yellow lined area of the road. Another eyewitness however subsequently denied that a parking ticket had been issued.
