A 73-YEAR-OLD man was cut free from his car after he hit the central reservation on the M27 earlier today.

The man, who was driving a Peagout 306, hit the central reservation, on the east bound carriageway between junction 9 for Segensworth, and junction 10, for Wickham.

The incident happened at 3.40pm today.

Two crews from Fareham fire station, plus one from St Mary’s and the special equipment unit, was called.

The man was freed, before he was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham, to be treated for minor injuries.

The outer lane of the carriageway was closed so debris could be cleared.

It was reopened shortly after 5pm, but is causing traffic on the motorway.
