A car left the carriageway and rolled onto its roof on the main Newport to Cowes road overnight, leaving Islanders asking ‘how?’.
The Ford Fiesta has crashed outside the Isle of Wight Military History museum on Newport Road, causing damage to the charity’s signage.
Island Echo understands the collision occurred sometime before 04:15 this morning (Thursday).
It appears the small hatchback was travelling towards Cowes when it clipped the near side verge, sending the vehicle across onto the other side of the road and into a roll onto the grassed area outside the museum.
Police are aware of the incident and have marked the vehicle accordingly.
UPDATE @ 09:05 – It has been confirmed that Police were called to the scene at 03:17 this morning.
1 person has reported minor injuries.
