A WOMAN had a lucky escape this morning after her car overturned on slippery roads.

The red Citroen C2 flipped onto its roof at Blackwater Junction off the A338.

Fire crews from Christchurch, Springbourne and Ringwood were called to the smash at around 7.30am.

However, the woman was not injured in the collision, and the road did not need to be closed.

A Dorset Police spokesperson said: "A member of the public reported a vehicle on its roof.

"A female was able to get out of the car. Officers arrived at the scene at 7.37am and located the vehicle near the Blackwater Bridge. The car had overturned in slippery conditions."
