19-YEAR-OLD GIRL KILLED IN LATE NIGHT CRASH NEAR ARRETON


A 19-year-old girl has sadly died following a car crash on the main Newport to Sandown road near Arreton overnight.

Emergency services were alerted to a single-vehicle collision at Hale Common – between Branstone and Arreton – at just gone 23:30 last night (Friday), as previously reported by Island Echo.

Tragically, it has been confirmed by Police that a 19-year-old female from Carisbrooke sustained fatal injuries in the crash and died at the scene. There were no other causalities.

Forensic investigators from the mainland-based Collision Investigation Unit have been examining the crash scene overnight and into daylight hours.

It appears that the vehicle – a black 2002 Ford Fiesta – was travelling from Sandown to Newport at the time of the collision. The vehicle collided with a garden wall, a telegraph pole and a fence post before coming to rest around 80-120 metres from the first skid mark. The rear passenger side of the vehicle took the brunt of the impact.

On-the-ground investigations have now concluded and the road has re-opened to all traffic after an 11-hour closure.

The victim’s Ford Fiesta has been recovered from the scene alongside a BMW X3 and a Ford Focus.

A spokesperson for Hampshire Constabulary has said:

“We are appealing for witnesses after a woman died in a single-vehicle collision on the Isle of Wight last night.

“The collision, involving a black Ford Fiesta, happened on the A3056 at Hale Common, Arreton at 11.35pm.

“Despite best efforts, a 19-year-old woman from Carisbrooke was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

“Officers investigating are now keen to speak with anyone who witnessed the collision or anyone who may have seen the black Fiesta in the area in the time leading up to 11.35pm. Maybe you have a dash cam in your car and captured footage of the vehicle prior to the collision?”

Really didn’t mean for that to sound harsh but I’m talking about the amount of accidents with the boy/girl racer groups lately, serious ones too, apologies for any disrespect

And what about the boomers who keep rolling their cars over, driving into hedges, going down the dual carriage way the wrong way because they were ‘confused’? Anyone can have a lapse of judgement and have an accident. Stop blaming a singular group, or does that allow you to feel superior?
