A TEENAGE student miraculously escaped injury on Tuesday despite her car crashing into a tree off the A46 and flipping onto its roof.
The crash happened on the northbound carriageway of the A46 near Leek Wootton just before 5pm and mangled the woman's car.
An ambulance and a paramedic area support officer were rushed to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival they found a small car on its roof. They were told that the car had left the road, gone up the embankment and collided with a tree.
"The driver, a 19-year-old lady from Norfolk, who is a student in the area, had managed to get out of the car even though the roof had been crushed down to such a degree that it was touching the head rest.
“She was sheltering in a car of another motorist who had stopped at the scene.
“The teenager was given a thorough check up by ambulance staff but she was completely uninjured and did not require hospital treatment.
“Crews described her escape from injury as extremely fortunate.”
