Woman cut from car wreckage after crash

March 1962 and a naval rating signals Halt to more conventional traffic as the Saunders-Roe SRN1 crosses the seafront at Lee-on-the-Solent and returns to HMS Ariel, now the site of the Hovercraft Museum. Roles such as anti-submarine warfare, air-sea rescue and mine countermeasures were foreseen.						                                Pictures courtesy Amberley Publishing

Have your say

A WOMAN had to be cut out of her car after she crashed head-on into a parked van.

The collision happened at around 11.25pm last night and saw police, fire crews and paramedics called to the scene.

Firefighters had to cut the roof off of the woman’s Vauxhall Corsa to free her from the wreckage in Church Road, Locks Heath.

The woman, who was in her 30s, was taken to hospital with suspected spinal injuries.

Major damage was caused to both vehicles.

Nobody was in the other vehicle, a small van, which was parked, when the collision happened.

Police closed the road, near to St Johns Park, to allow the scene to be dealt with.

Ten firefighters from Fareham and Hightown, plus a fire officer, worked to free the woman for more than an hour.

The wreckage was cleared and the road reopened at 1am today.
