A WOMAN was taken to hospital after a car crashed into a parked vehicle in Hereford.

Police were called to Mill Street, near Castle Green, at around 12.30am on May 19 after a car crashed into a parked vehicle, causing extensive damage.

An ambulance spokesperson said paramedics were called to the scene of the crash by police.

The female passenger of the car suffered minor injuries in the crash and was assessed at the scene before being taken to Hereford County Hospital by ambulance for further treatment.

A police spokesperson said a 17-year-old man was arrested at the scene of the crash on suspicion of drink-driving, but has since been released without charge.

The vehicles were made safe by fire crews from Hereford.

Eyewitness Graham Anstee said: "The Peugeot collided with the kerb, went into a slide and hit the red Vauxhall, which was pushed up onto the kerb and into the rear of the Land Rover Discovery it was parked behind.

"The Peugeot then turned through 90 degrees, coming to rest lying across the carriageway and embedded in the side of the other vehicles."
