The driver of a Vauxhall Corsa had a lucky escape after rolling the vehicle onto its roof at Calbourne last night (Saturday).
Police were called to the scene on Middle Road, at the S-bends past Calbourne Water Mill, sometime around 22:00.
The dark blue Corsa came to a stop upside down in a hedge lining the carriageway. Police say that the driver escaped serious injury.
It’s been confirmed that the incident was not caused by drink or drugs, but there has been some suggestion that a wild animal may have run out into the road. Motorists are being reminded to drive according to the condition of the Island’s rural roads.
The vehicle remain in-situ but is due to be recovered from the scene later on today.
Last night’s crash was the second on Middle Road in 24 hours. Emergency services were called to a more serious collision near Betty Haunt Lane during the early hours of Saturday morning, as previously reported by Island Echo.
