It was thought the car, which had not been speeding, had encountered a vehicle travelling the other way which forced them onto a kerb which then turned the car onto its side.

The emergency services were on the scene within a matter of minutes, but the driver and passenger had only minor cuts and bruises.

One lane has since re-opened while the vehicle is being recovered.
