Emergency services are in attendance between Ryde and Brading this morning (Sunday), where a car has crashed into trees at the side of the road.

Paramedics from the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service are checking over the occupants of the car, 1 of which has been placed in a neck brace.

Island Echo understands fire crews were also called to the scene earlier on this morning but have since stood down. Police remain in attendance.

It appears the car, for reasons unknown, left the road whilst travelling towards Ryde, crashing into undergrowth and trees being being spun and coming to a stop head-on into another tree.

Beaper Shute has been closed to traffic heading towards Ryde, but remains open for vehicles heading south. Northbound traffic is being diverted via Harding Shute and Ashey.

Southern Vectis buses are diverting via Nettlestone.

UPDATE @ 13:15 – The road remains closed whilst Police await the outcome of medical assessments at St Mary’s Hospital.

……

hmm – man and woman in car at 0600 – probably arguing about something and whoever was driving wasn’t focused on the road ahead.

They crashed into a tree. I sympathize with the tree…. Glad it wasn’t an innocent motorists they collided with.

I totally agree. The amount of people judging my crash on here saying it was the hedges fault when they didn’t know what happed is ridiculous!! No one knows what actually happened and for all you know the driver and passenger could be really shaken up and hurt.

Drunk driver, too fast, not paying attention, could be loads of reasons why this happened, will just have to wait till the real reason is given.

Why is there still so much traffic around Smallbrook junction and the surrounding areas if this incident was sorted out earlier?
