A TEENAGE driver was treated at the scene of a crash after her car rolled on its side blocking a road in High Bickington early this morning.

Devon and Cornwall Police crew control received a call from another motorist at 5.45am alerting them to the crash which happened on the B3217.

The 19-year-old driver of the silver Peugeot 206 was treated by ambulance crew for minor injuries. She did not need to be taken to hospital.

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Highways were called to put grit down because oil had spilled onto the road.

"The car was recovered because it couldn't be driven. There is no indication of how the accident happened."

The road was clear and open by 7.45am.
