The driver has been left with a serious head injury and remains in hospital after his car rolled onto its roof in Potters Bar.

The incident happened on Monday November 15 at around 1.45am, with the white Volkswagen Caddy travelling northbound on Barnet Road.

As the vehicle passed the junction with Dancers Hill Road, it collided with a central pedestrian refuge before crossing to the near side and rolling onto its roof.

Both the driver and passenger managed to escape from the car and the emergency services were called to the scene.

The passenger sustained minor injuries, but the driver, a man in his 20s, sustained a serious head injury and remains in hospital at this time.
