CAR HITS BANK AND ROLLS INTO FIELD AT BLACKWATER


Emergency services responded to reports that a car had left the road and rolled into a field near Arreton earlier this morning (Wednesday). 

The incident occurred on the main Newport to Sandown Road between Blackwater and Arreton at around 05:30.

2 fire crews were mobilised to the scene over fears an individual was trapped inside the Ford Focus, which came to rest on its side having gone up a bank whilst travelling towards Arreton.

Thankfully, no one was seriously injured in the crash but the car has sustained serious front-end damage.

The driver was helped from the vehicle by fire crews and handed over to paramedics from the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service.

The car remains in situ this morning close to the local parcel distribution centre.

The fact is “bad driving = accident”
Or in the case of a “medical episode” driving when you shouldn’t

Even in today’s enlightened thought processes most people would struggle to call this good driving.

If he’s getting up early every morning, maybe he fell asleep at the wheel?
Whatever the case, flipping his car sure woke him up lol.
Needs to spend less time watching Netflix till 3am and get some sleep like a good worker bee.

So he was driving way too fast for the road conditions, AKA ‘bad driving’.
Phil nailed it.

Lol ok.
If he was at a “safe speed” and driving with due care and attention, he would be doing some Italian Job style stunts.
LMFAO

I think they feed off the thumbs down’s. Like sorry little bullies who have mummy/daddy issues and take it out on everyone.
Best not read their comments and don’t fuel their ego’s with a response.
