Five hurt in traffic collisions
Five motorists were injured in a pair of serious traffic collisions that happened on Saturday night.
A police spokesman said: “At about 9.30pm, police, fire and ambulance personnel were dispatched to a reported serious collision on Cobbs Hill Road in Warwick near the junction with the Railway Trail.”
Further details are limited at this time, but it appears that two men on a motorcycle and a female on a 50cc scooter were involved. All three were injured and transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance for treatment.
An update on their conditions is expected in due course.
Traffic diversions were in effect for approximately three hours while the scene was processed.
Less than four hours later, police responded to the scene of a separate collision on Middle Road in Southampton.
The spokesman said: “At about 12.10am Sunday, police, fire and ambulance personnel were dispatched to a reported serious collision near Hawthorn Lane.
“It appears that a male motorcyclist and a male 50cc scooter rider travelling in opposite directions along Middle Road collided in the vicinity of the Wok Express.”
One of the riders was transported to hospital via ambulance for treatment of an apparently serious but not life-threatening leg injury.
The scene was processed and inquiries continue.
Any witnesses to either of the collisions are encouraged to call the main police telephone number 295-0011.
