Two people had a lucky escape after a car ended up on its roof on the Snake Pass over the weekend.

The blue Kia Picanto hit an embankment on the busy A57 road, around a mile outside of Glossop heading towards Sheffield, before rolling over on Saturday morning (October 7) at around 9:30am.

The driver and a passenger were left with minor injuries and were treated at the scene by paramedics from East Midlands Ambulance Service.

Firefighters from Glossop Blue Watch attended just after 10am to make the scene safe, with the two people already out of the vehicle when crews arrived.

A spokesperson for Derbyshire Police said they first received reports of the accident at 9:40am and contacted Derbyshire County Council’s highways department to close the road, which was covered in oil and being blocked by the car.

They also confirmed that one lane was re-opened at 11:10am before the road was fully re-opened half an hour later.
