First published in Epping Forest East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Photograph of the Author by , Reporter - Waltham Forest

A woman had to be cut free from her car this morning after it overturned at the junction of Alfred Road and Roding Lane, in Buckhurst Hill.

Fire and ambulance crews were called to the incident just before 9am, in which a silver Renault Mégane left the road and crashed into a ditch.

One woman in her 40’s was treated for minor injuries and taken to Whipps Cross Hospital, Leytonstone.

Police say that road conditions at the time were icy.

Trust the police to come up with an excuse rather than investigate whether or not driver error was to blame.

The story says.

i would assume police were also present with fire crew and ambulance and done there investigations.

Why blame the driver on road conditions?

What a strange thing to say. It was icy this morning and that part of Roding Lane is regularly iced over due to run off of water from the fields.

Even the most careful of drivers can be caught out if they hit a patch of ice. I find it more odd that someone would choose to imply driver error despite a report suggesting otherwise.

The lady was obviously going too fast for the conditions and driving beyond her capability. Maybe texting or doing makeup or smoking as you often see.

Luckily she did not cause injury and damage to others.

It's not just sexist.

It's a typical CB assumption that the driver is "guilty" of driving badly and behaving irresponsibly when he knows nothing of the facts except that, in this case, the police say the road was icy

He, of course, is a perfect driver (in his own eyes). Lord knows, he spends enough time driving around the whole Guardian series area looking for police officers having their lunch, trying out cafes where incidents have taken place, testing all the pubs, attending talks and events from North Weald to south Leytonstone, and somehow finding time to go home to Marylebone.

This is no time for levity. Lives are at risk, people have been killed and you find it comical?

Tell that to the families of victims who light up the shrines of their victims and Forget me Not campaigners.

Try reading the story and try having a little thought for the lady the emergancy services attended to rescue.

The only victim here had to be cut from her car, DUE TO ICY CONDITIONS.

What a shame that nearly every comment page on news stories on this site ends in people replying to and engaging with Cornbeefur and is invariably drawn off topic.

Given that most people's responses indicate that they think he/she is trolling, wouldn't the best solution be simply to ignore him/her and not respond?
