A car has left the carriageway and subsequently rolled into a field on Stroudwood Road tonight (Tuesday).
The Isle of Wight Ambulance Service has been called to the scene between Ryde and Havenstreet, where it is thought at least 1 person has sustained an arm injury after the vehicle – a Citroen C3 – left the road.
It is understood that no other vehicles have been involved in the incident, which occurred at around 22:25.
UPDATE @ 22:58 – Local police officers are now on the scene, but the driver is not with the vehicle.
It appears the car left the road at speed on the exit of a long right hand bend and rolled at least once, emptying the contents of the boot into a field containing ponies.
The vehicle is expected to be recovered at a later date.
The road remains open in both directions.
UPDATE WEDNESDAY – A 24-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of drug driving following last night’s single vehicle collision.
The individual was taken to St Mary’s Hospital for treatment.
