A WOMAN has suffered head injuries after the car she was in was involved in an accident on the A31 at Ringwood this morning.

The accident comes as pressure mounts on improving safety on one of the south's most notorious roads.

Police were called to reports of a Citroen Saxo colliding with the central reservation on the westbound carriageway at 9.41am today.

The vehicle subsequently overturned and came to rest on the eastbound side of the road.

The entire road was closed in order to allow the Air Ambulance to land and transfer the casualty to hospital.

Officers have since reopened the westbound carriageway and one lane of the eastbound carriageway but delays are reported to be significant.
