A WOMAN had to be taken to hospital for treatment after being involved in a three-car accident.

The 21-year-old was cut free from her Peugeot 306 after the collision with a taxi and a parked car in Mill Road in Waterlooville at about 8.30pm yesterday.

The male taxi driver was also treated at the scene by an ambulance crew but did not need to be taken to hospital.

There were no passengers in the taxi. The parked car was empty.

The road was closed by police officers for 30 minutes while emergency services dealt with the incident.

A retained crew from Waterlooville fire station was first at the scene.

Special equipment unit from Cosham fire station was also called to help.

Waterlooville’s crew manager Paul Whiley said: ‘We had to cut one female out and she was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital by ambulance.

‘But it was just precautionary – her injuries weren’t believed to be life-threatening.

‘The road was closed for a short while, but that was mainly as a safety measure for us guys, so we could work the scene.’
