Two people were trapped in a car after it crashed into a music shop in St Albans Road, Watford, in the early hours of the morning.

Paramedics were called to the shop, near Cecil Street, at 1.34am

Gary Sanderson, a spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service, said: "Both occupants were found trapped in the wreckage in the shop front on our arrival.

"Paramedics treated, stabilised and immobilised both casualties before they were conveyed to Watford General Hospital for further care. They received slight injuries."

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue said the car hit the metal barriers at the side of the road and then crashed into the shop side-on.

Firefighters were called at 1.40am and said the victims “seemed ok” and they “made space so that they could get out.”

Handy that the music shop mentions "repairs" on their window.

On a side note, I'd love to know how someone can create such a trail of devastation on a road that was presumably quiet at the time, has a 30mph limit and so many "speed" cameras.

Updated article on WO says:
"The male driver, who has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving, was taken to Watford General Hospital with serious injuries. His male passenger has also been arrested and bailed."

Which answers my question!
