Car crashes through metal fence outside Gosport sailing centre as driver suffers 'medical episode'
A DRIVER who suffered a potential ‘medical episode' has been taken to hospital after crashing through metal railings outside a sailing centre.
Part of the fence surrounding the Joint Services Adventurous Sail Training Centre, in Haslar Road, Gosport, was destroyed in the crash at 3pm today.
A spokesman for the centre said its fence and an unoccupied portacabin on-site were damaged in the collision.
It is understood a member of staff helped the driver, who police believe may have fallen ill at the wheel.
The centre said: ‘We will assess the damage when the car had been removed.
‘We do not have any details on the driver, who was taken to hospital with what we understand are non-serious injuries.’
A Hampshire police spokesman said the driver suffered a ‘possible medical episode’.
He said: ‘We were called at 3.04pm. A car collided with railings – no details of injuries.’
