A car was badly damaged in a crash on a flooded road on the outskirts of Welwyn Garden City this morning.
A black vehicle suffered damage to its front bumper and lights following a crash on Marford Road between Lemsford and Wheathampstead.
The collision happened on a stretch of the road which often floods during heavy rainfall.
The lane was blocked for those travelling in the direction of Wheathampstead.
By 10.15am, traffic was starting to queue.
One eyewitness said: “The car was smashed in at the front.
“I think it was a Nissan.
“There was another car that had stopped on the other side of the flood water.
“I don’t know if it was involved in the crash or whether they had stopped to help the people.
“This area of Marford Road is notorious for flooding.
“You never know how deep the water is and people often drive around it, going onto the other side of the road.
“It’s always been an accident waiting to happen.”
