A motorist escaped with minor injuries after his vehicle flipped onto its roof after hitting a parked car.
Police were called to an overturned car on Norwich Road, Fakenham, near the junction with Mission Lane. The car was turned onto its roof by the side of the road after hitting a parked vehicle.
The driver, a man in his 20s, freed himself from the car, and nearby residents rushed to his aid. Police and paramedics arrived shortly after, before the man made his own way to hospital.
Nearby resident Curtis Walter said: "The bang was very loud, but everyone soon sprang to action when it happened. My neighbours looked after the man's wounds while we waited for the ambulance.
"I was shocked as I'd never been so close to an accident before. Everyone who helped was incredible, it shows how good the Fakenham community is."
