The crash happened at about 6.30pm at Tholomas Drove, between Guyhirn and Wisbech St Mary. The car left High Road during the downpour, smashed through a fence and ended on its side.

Police were called after a passerby spotted the driver of the car walking towards Guyhirn moments after the crash, with minor facial injuries.

Ambulance crews also attended the scene.
