Couple suffer bruising after Twizy collides with car

A still from dashcam footage of a collision between a car and a minicar spread on social media.

A tourist couple in an electric hire car suffered minor bruises after a collision with a vehicle on Middle Road in Southampton.

A police spokesman said that officers received a report of a two-vehicle collision near the junction with Pompano Beach Road at about 6.40pm on Tuesday.

“Apparently the driver of a Renault Twizy rental minicar that exited Pompano Beach Road on to Middle Road, heading west in the eastbound lane, collided with a private car being driven east along Middle Road, in the eastbound lane,” the spokesman said.

“The driver and passenger of the Twizy, said to be a 60-year-old visiting American man and a 50-year-old visiting American woman, are understood to have sustained bruising from their seatbelts.”

The driver of the car, a 47-year-old Sandys man, was not hurt in the collision. However, both vehicles sustained damage to their front.

“While at the scene, those involved agreed to settle it among themselves and normal traffic flow resumed in the area after approximately an hour,” the spokesman added.
