POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a pile-up which left three people injured.

The accident happened on the northbound carriageway of the A3M at Clanfield on November 17.

The collision occurred just before the lay-by at Clanfield, and resulted in long tailbacks at 7am.

A white Volkswagen Touran braked for a car in front and was hit from behind by a silver Toyota Yaris which in turn was hit in the rear by a blue Peugeot 307.

The Toyota was driven by a 43-year-old woman from Havant, the Peugeot was driven by a 60-year-old man from Waterlooville.

The Volkswagen was driven by a 47-year-old man from Portsmouth and all three suffered minor injuries including sore necks and shoulders. None of them needed hospital treatment.

PC Steve Wootton from the Roads Policing Unit in Fratton, said: ‘We are looking to speak to anyone who was driving on the A3M on Thursday morning who witnessed the collision and can provide us with more details.’

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or 0845 045 45 45 if calling from outside Hampshire.
