NO INJURIES AS CAR CRASHES INTO DITCH AT QUARR

Police have been called to a single car collision between Binstead and Fishbourne this morning (Saturday). 

A Citroen Xsara Picasso has left the road and come to rest on its side in a ditch off Quarr Hill, near to the entrance to Quarr Abbey.

Officers responded to the scene at just before 11:15, but it’s unclear what time the collision occurred.

I think you’ll find it was that ‘innocent’ looking pole, they’re always jumping out and letting the ditches take the blame.

The ditch isn’t the issue it’s the driver…

More than likely in a rush, driving without due care, on their phone , drink or drugs ! You don’t just drive along the road at 40 and fall into a ditch. If it is unclear what happened when police attended I take it the driver did one ? Sounds dodgy

Certainly not medical episode or faulty car. What a wise comment. Well done.

On phone I bet. See so many doing it these days. Be interesting if they follow this up with what was the cause.

Looks like in the main pic that car narrowly missed the lampost too.

Would you expect a Citroen to be able to keep in a straight line.

I agree the black stuff makes a better surface to drive on ,maybe they should pass this on to all those parking on grass verges especially Royal Mail delivery drivers etc why do these people think that’s it’s ok to screw up all the green areas

No idea how that happened, pin the tail on the donkey time i think. I suppose the most obvious is not looking where you are going.

Can’t even blame a low sun as would have been behind, assuming the car was traveling in the direction it’s facing. Probably like a lot of drivers, too busy being distracted by their phone, or the ditch simply got in the way. Otherwise, maybe the lamp post was actually very clever in dodging the oncoming car as thought it was being aimed for!

First the hedges were jumping out at vehicles, then the trees joined in and now the ditches are at it.
I wonder what is next, Bus shelters or even No entry signs?
