Police have given updates on six people injured in a crash last night in Flatts, in which a man was arrested under suspicion of impaired driving.

Onlookers described pulling several persons from a flipped car that apparently struck a wall on Middle Road, near Whitney Institute, Smith's, at about 10.20pm.

As of today, one passenger, an 18-year-old woman, was in stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit, while another 18-year-old female passenger was stable and expected to be admitted to a general ward.

A 19-year-old male passenger, described as stable, was being moved to a general ward, and two male passengers, aged 25 and 27, have been treated and discharged from the hospital.

The driver, a 25-year-old man believed to be from Warwick, remained in police custody after being treated.

The crash left both lanes blocked and littered with debris beside the Flatts Post Office, as police processed the scene for a few hours.

The overturned car took extensive damage, with a section of wall knocked down along the southern verge of Middle Road. The vehicle has been impounded by police.

A light pole at the pedestrian crossing was also damaged.

Inquiries regarding the circumstances of this crash continue and any witnesses are encouraged to contact the main police telephone number 295-0011 at the earliest opportunity.
