Five in hospital after road crashes

Five people were taken to hospital after two crashes on Middle Road yesterday.

A 40-year-old Southampton woman had to be cut free by firefighters after her car was in a head-on collision with a truck around 4pm on the Paget stretch of the road, while three young passengers, aged 17, 15 and six, were also injured.

All four were taken to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital but the injuries are not thought to be serious, although the 15 year-old remains in hospital in a “stable” condition. The truck driver escaped injury.

The accident happened near the junction with Manse Road.

Around half an hour later, a 23-year-old Warwick man was taken to hospital after his motorcycle was involved in a single vehicle accident on the same road near its junction with Greendale Lane.

He is listed as being in “stable” condition.

There were traffic delays and diversions around the scenes of both accidents.

Police have appealed for witnesses to both crashes.
