A collision involving a MG car and a Ford Transit has prompted an emergency response from Police, fire and ambulance crews afternoon (Friday).
The incident has occurred on Swanmore Road outside The Falcon pub, in which the MG has collided with the rear of the Transit tipper.
2 fire appliances from Ryde are on scene alongside resources from the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service and local Police.
The crash occurred around 15:30 and it’s thought low sun may have played a part on what is a particularly narrow section of the carriageway.
No one has been seriously injured or trapped but substantial damage has been caused to the car.
The one-way road is currently blocked from the junction with Milligan Road.
UPDATE @ 16:08 – Firefighters have now moved the car, parting it from its embedded position.
The road remains blocked but is expected to re-open shortly.
UPDATE @ 16:30 – It has been confirmed that the driver, a 65-year-old woman, was able to free herself from the car.
The road has now reopened.
