A WOMAN was taken to hospital with head and facial injuries after a car flipped on to its roof.

Emergency services were called to the A539 at Vicarage Fields, in Ruabon, at 8.30am this morning.

Initial reports suggested two people had been trapped in the overturned Chevrolet vehicle, but it later transpired that one female casualty was inside.

She was taken to Wrexham Maelor hospital by ambulance.

Two fire crews from Wrexham made the vehicle safe.

There was disruption to traffic in the area afterwards, but a police spokeswoman said the road had remained open.
