Traffic is heavy in the area with delays already being felt due to the 4-way temporary traffic lights at the top of Lake Hill.

No one is thought to have been seriously injured but paramedics from the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service are in attendance.

UPDATE @ 13:20 – A 58-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of driving a vehicle whilst unfit through drugs, according to Hampshire Constabulary.

Yet another single vehicle accident, One can never comment on a specific accident in case someone has the misfortune of a medical episode or some other really unfortunate situation but ‘in general’, as there are so many single vehicle accidents, one has to ask, are drivers attentions being distracted by on board screens eg. Sat Navs or, dare I suggest, phones ?

Linda,
Yes they did read the post … the arrest on suspicion of drug driving wasn’t known at 11:58, as that update was only made at 13:20, an hour after the post from JHVF.

At one time, being drunk or drugged would have added greatly to your sentence. Now, it is used as an excuse for the accident and if any charge is made for being out of it, it will run concurrently, so no reason for the low life NOT too.

Imagine IF it had crush a child on their way to school. Do YOU think ‘it’ would care, only for it’s own worthless skin. Shame it is not paralysed for life, as likely we will keep ‘it’ and many clones it produces too.
