RSC chair involved in road accident

Former Road Safety Council Chairman Christopher Johnson is counting his blessings after being involved in a three-car accident on Middle Road Southampton.

Three children and two adults were involved but there were no serious injuries.

Dr Johnson, who chaired the Road Safety Council from 2005 until 2012, was quick to confirm the accident when

The Royal Gazette contacted him yesterday.

The pile up occurred during the early morning commute earlier this month.

An ambulance coming in the opposite direction caused cars to come to a halt. Dr Johnson’s car struck the car in front which collided with another car.

“It was a three car pile-up, and two of the people were taken to the hospital but went home the same day,” said Dr Johnson.

“There were three children involved, including my child, who were completely unscathed. Thank God they were unharmed.”

Dr Johnson said he had been in e-mail contact with the other adults who, he said, had suffered whiplash.

“Collisions are preventable and it should not have happened” he said. “I’ve never been involved in something like this so I was quite shaken. It was a wake up call to always be vigilant, thoughtful and careful.”
