THE driver of a car that hit a speed camera has been taken to hospital with serious multiple injuries.

A male in his 50s was driving a blue Hyundai and was going down Northern Parade, in Hilsea, near to the Magdalen Road junction, when he went into a speed camera in the middle of the road.

South Central Ambulance Service sent one ambulance and an officer, and the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance was also scrambled.

The road was closed in both directions by Hampshire police, and was reopened at midday.

Two crews from Cosham were called at 10.10am and had to cut the roof off the car, in order to free the man.
