Man stable after early morning crash

A 45-year-old man was taken to hospital after his car veered off the road and into Harrington Sound.

According to a police spokesman, at around 12.45am yesterday emergency services responded to reports of a single-vehicle collision at the junction with Lolly’s Well Road.

“It appears that the driver, a 45-year-old man was travelling in an easterly direction along Harrington Sound Road in Smith’s when he lost control of his vehicle and subsequently landed partially submerged in the ocean,” the spokesman said.

“The lone occupant was able to free himself from the car unassisted.”

Yesterday, the driver was said to be in a stable condition in the intensive care unit of King Edward VII Memorial Hospital. Anyone with information is urged to contact police at 295-0011.
