Have your say

A WOMAN was lucky to escape with minor injuries after her car plunged into a ditch and flipped over.

The black Mini overturned after careering into a hedge and then a ditch off the B2149 at Rowlands Castle.

Emergency services were called at about 7.30pm on Saturday. A crew from Havant fire station helped to get the woman out of the car and clear the debris.

Craig Sadler, watch manager at Havant, said: ‘The ambulance crew treated her at the scene for her injuries.

‘They were happy not to have to use a spinal board, so there were no spinal injuries.’

The woman was taken by ambulance to Queen Alexandra Hospital for treatment.
