A Toyota Yaris has collided head-on into a lamp post causing not only significant damage to the vehicle, but leaving a street light hanging dangerously too.
The incident has occurred on Binstead Road at the junction of Gwydyr Close.
The Isle of Wight Ambulance Service are on scene having been alerted to the incident at around 14:20. They are tending to the driver of the car.
Police are also in attendance with officers directing traffic in both directions. Traffic is heavy in the area and as a result there are delays to Southern Vectis buses.
Island Roads have already arrived at Binstead to make the scene safe.
UPDATE – The scene has now been cleared and traffic has returned to normal levels.
Only minor injuries were sustained in the crash, it has been confirmed.
