DRIVERS escaped serious injuries after a three-car pile-up last night.

The Southampton-bound Redbridge Causeway was blocked when a blue VW Golf, a blue Ford Fiesta and a green Vauxhall Astra were in collision at 5.33pm.

One of the drivers suffered minor injuries and was taken to Southampton General Hospital by ambulance. The collision caused major traffic jams as far as the Rushington Roundabout.
