A luxury sports car left the road, collided with a lamp post and came to a stop on a grass bank in Lake this morning (Friday).
The incident happened at around 07:30 on Newport Road, just off the Merrie Gardens roundabout outside Aldi supermarket.
It’s unclear what caused the driver of the convertible Jaguar to mount the pavement and drive up the bank.
1 fire appliance from Shanklin was mobilised to the incident in the interests of scene safety.
Police were also called to the scene and officers have since taped off the area to make other motorists aware that they know about the situation.
