The driver of a Land Rover Defender escaped with minor injuries when his vehicle rolled over several times after colliding with a tree on Middle Road during the early hours of yesterday morning (Saturday).
Police were called to the debris-stricken scene of the single vehicle crash, between Carisbrooke and Calbourne, at 01:12 on Saturday. They were alerted by the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service.
Island Echo understands the vehicle left the road and crashed into a verge and a tree before then rolling several times, destroying the vehicle. The car came to rest on its side.
Amazingly, no one was trapped or seriously injured in the smash.
The 32-year-old male driver was taken to St Mary’s Hospital with minor injuries.
Enquiries are ongoing.
