Police tape off Thornhill Park Road

First published in News

A ROAD in to Southampton has been closed off this evening after a teenage pedestrian was hospitalised in a collision with a car.

The 13-year-old girl was initially thought to have sustained life threatening injuries after colliding with a Chrysler Cruiser PT at around 5pm.

But medics at Southampton General Hospital later found her injuries to be less serious than first thought.

Police have taped off Thornhill Park Road in both ways and say the closure is likely to stay in place into the night while investigations get underway.

Closures were rolled out along the A334 between the A27 Moorhill Road at the Kanes Hill roundabout and Upper Deacon Road.

I'll be honest, I'm surprised there haven't been more accidents along there, I've witnessed cars and even buses and trucks jumping each set of lights at one time or another, the worst is at the kanes hill end on the lights where hinkler road meets it, cars are sometimes still doing 40 by the lights because they didn't see either of the 30 limit signs that are either obscured by algae or bushes.

Couldn't agree more, it can also be very dangerous to pull out of any roads or car parks along there too due to the speed people go along there, especially at upper deacon where you can't see jack all that's coming up the hill until it's too late and normally they're speeding up the hill, I've seen kids crossing that road and they've had the fabric of a trouser leg clipped by someone jumping the lights or a car had to brake violently because they went to jump until a kid or old lady stepped out in front of them, makes me sick yet many other motorists won't complain about it, yet if it were a cyclist who did it, everyone would be out brandishing the pitchforks and torches to call for the cyclist to be burned at the stake even though a car is a 1.5Tonne to 2Tonne killing machine and a cyclist is at most a tenth of the weight of a car if it's a large cyclist, something needs to be done about it and soon, or I'll start sitting up there on my bike waiting for them to RLJ and catch them on camera, then edit the footage, putting each clip into a montage over the course of 2 months for each set of lights and then send it to the policing unit who deal with the roads telling them to sort it out before someone dies, I would also send the montage video and the same or similar message to the PCC, SCC, DVLA, local MP's, local media, Hampshire county council, any companies who's vehicles get featured, youtube and maybe even a bunch of the major insurance companies, I wonder how quickly driver behaviour along there would change if I did that?

thankfully not a PO postcode says...

now lets assess the pedestrians ... walking along staring at mobiles not looking as they stroll right out into the path of cars or not walking the extra 2 foot and using traffic lights/zebra crossings, the cyclist who weaves in and out of cars and has no regard for the highway code , the people/children who seem to have never heard of the green cross code !! im glad the kids life isn't in jeopardy but its not always the car drivers fault generally the people who blame car drivers don't drive ! of course their are people who drive like ***** but its a small minority

Like cyclists who have no regard for the highway code are only a small minority, Saw a car jump a red light, then saw a guy earlier who had lights on him but they were so dim that they might as well have been turned off, then a pavement cyclist, then a **** passed me with only an inch to spare with their car, then another **** in a car who was driving along bursledon road with their lights turned off, so I'd say there's just as many idiots on bikes and feet as there are monkeys sat at the wheel of killing machines.
