Amy Childs feels "lucky to be alive" after crashing her car.
The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star flipped her £140,000 Range Rover Sport as she drove in South Woodford in north-east London at around 10pm last night (15.10.14).
According to MailOnline, the luxury vehicle's roof had collapsed following the smash but Amy, 24, managed to climb out unharmed.
Witnesses at the scene say Amy was quickly attended to by paramedics and appeared "shocked" and "shaken" by the experience.
It is believed the car rolled over after striking a traffic island and colliding with two lampposts.
Metropolitan police were also called to the scene after receiving reports of an "over-turned car".
A spokesman said: "At this early stage it is believed that the vehicle was in collision with a traffic light. There are no reported injuries at this time and enquiries are continuing."
Amy took to Twitter following the crash and thanked fans for their "lovely" messages of support.
She wrote on the social media site: "I am so lucky to be alive thank you to everyone for your lovely messages."
It is thought the car was identified as the reality TV star's after her distinctive license plate 'WE11 JEL', her TOWIE catchphrase, was recognised.
