Driver’s thank you after car rolls off road
A hospital worker who was in shock after her car rolled off a country road has thanked everyone who helped her after the accident.
Nicole Crabtree, 22, a mental health nurse at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn, was travelling back to her Dereham home on Wednesday, January 2, when her Ford KA ended up in a field at about 8.45pm.
She was driving along the B1145 Gayton to Litcham road, heading towards Litcham, when she swerved to avoid a deer on an S bend.
Her car ended up facing the opposite direction on its wheels.
Miss Crabtree managed to get out of the vehicle and rang 999, but two men who stopped soon after the crash helped her.
