Police make arrests after car accidents
A pair of early morning accidents resulted in the arrest of two Southampton men suspected of driving while impaired.
A police spokesman said that at around 12.30am on Saturday, officers responded to a single-vehicle motorcycle crash on Warwick Lane.
A 29-year-old Southampton man and a 24-year-old Southampton man, apparently involved in the collision, were located at the scene with injuries.
The 29-year-old was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released. The younger man suffered only minor injuries, but was arrested on suspicion of impaired driving.
An hour later, at around 1.30am, police responded to another collision involving two cars.
Both vehicles appear to have been travelling along Middle Road in Smith’s, when they collided near the junction with North Shore Road.
“There were no reported injuries however the car driver, a 28-year-old Southampton man, was arrested on suspicion of impaired driving,” the spokesman stated.
“Both vehicles received extensive front-end damage. Inquiries into this collision are ongoing and a court appearance for the car driver is anticipated in due course.”
