A car ended up in a ditch after veering off the A361 North Devon Link Road and into some trees this afternoon.
Police and ambulance crews were called to the scene at Two Gates Cross, near Rackenford, at around 12.20pm.
Officers said the driver of the black Nissan Qashqai escaped uninjured after the vehicle left the road and ended up in a ditch.
Passers-by contacted the emergency services to report the incident, although it is understood the driver managed to free himself from the vehicle.
He was treated at the scene by paramedics for shock but was otherwise unharmed.
Officers remain at the scene and are arranging for the vehicle to be recovered from the embankment.
The road remains open as the vehicle left the road and didn’t cause a blockage on the carriageway.
