A number of resources from the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service are on scene – including 2 officers – alongside their colleagues from the fire service and Hampshire Constabulary.

UPDATE @ 11:15 – 1 woman suffering from neck pains has been extricated from a Suzuki  and transferred into the care of paramedics.

She is being conveyed to St Mary’s Hospital, Newport.

UPDATE @ 11:45Island Echo is told the collision occurred when 1 vehicle braked to make a turn, which then led to the 2 vehicles behind being involved in a shunt.

The VW Golf at the rear of the line of traffic crashed into the rear of the Suzuki and then into the oncoming Skoda on the opposite side of the road.

The road is expected to remain closed into this afternoon whilst the scene is cleared.

UPDATE @ 12:55 – Newport Road has now re-opened to all traffic.

The one at the back that caused it probably either way its still definatly careless driving. Hope all involved recover swiftly.

My guess would be that some one was driving excessively slowly and unexpectedly braked for a corner that they really didn’t need to, if typical island driving standards were maintained.

Sounds like the golf wasn’t concentrating or going too fast to stop in time. That stretch of road is now 30mph some don’t realise it’s changed from 50. Only takes a second of looking away. Hope all ok.

More stupidity and tailgating on the Island, driving too fast and little or no braking distance…..

Maybe if people actually drove near the speed limit and not 10mph under there won’t be as much tailgating..

Judging from the cars, it wasn’t an R32 Golf so not really much of a loss….
