Traffic was diverted from Harbour Road this afternoon after a car struck a wall and ended up on the water’s edge.

A police spokesman said that at about 1.30pm, emergency services responded to a report of a single-vehicle crash in Paget.

“Apparently, a car being driven along Harbour Road, between Lovers Lane and Highwood Lane, struck a wall and ended up at the water’s edge,” he added.

“It is understood that the female driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was assisted out of the vehicle.”
