A326 Marchwood bypass reopened after crash

Daily Echo: Three car crash closes major road Three car crash closes major road

One of the Hampshire's busiest roads was closed in both directions following a three-car crash.

The A326 Marchwood bypass was shut for almost two hours while police dealt with a "serious" crash.

The accident happened near teh Dibden roundabout at 11.58am just south of the Staplewood Lane junction.

Witnesses are being asked to call Hampshire Constabulary on 101 with any information.

An appliance from Totton fire station was despatched amid fears that at least one person was trapped in the wreckage of the vehicles.

But a Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said no-one had to be cut free, which meant the crew did not need to take any action.

Probably caused by the brainless tailgating drivers who fail to observe the 40/50mph limits in this area.

It's a good job there aren't any judgmental people on here to comment on posters who don't use capital letters, don't put spaces after full stops or can't spell "judgmental".

My office is at Applemore and the road was closed for more than two hours. It was still partially closed by late afternoon. Really don't know why the Police have to keep major roads closed for so long these days ... especially when it also took ages for them to create diversions meaning that people travelling from Totton to see me couldn't make planned meetings and a lot of time was wasted as a result.

What's that got to do with the accident?

The police take so long to clear any accident because it wastes shift time. Hang out the time till their shift ends. Send for "so called" specialist traffic incident investigator to take a few photos and measurements, your ordinary bobby is incapable of such intricate things. When he's finished send for tow truck. Done the right way and in the right order they can waste anything up to plus five hours. What was sorted in an hour or less years ago now takes a long time as there has to be a responsibility for the accident with a view to prosecution.

I can't be bothered to read the rest of this thread, apart from your comment.

Exactly, where is your "Office". I live in Hythe, please be specific.

After a Major traffic incident, the Police have to call a Fatality or near Fatality so that the Police Accident Division is mobilised and used for their experience. Whether there is a fatality or not, they will still turn up. Their existence is crucial and important in a serious incident and as we all know, evidence is crucial.

Yes, my family was involved in a serious road accident. I speak from experience.

To worry about your clients position is childish and superficial. The only "Offices " at Applemore are the Stables, The Cattery, Tesco or the NFDC Health Centre (Or what ever it is called).

You are wrong, stop pretending you live over here.

Childish and Immature comment. Obviously a Labour or Union member commenting here. Ignore.

Why don't all you rude thoughtless people just shut up. So what if you we're late, so what if you had to take another route home. For the people affected by this, your nastiness is hurtful! Someone was ill,it wasn't his fault and he's now suffering even more, not that you probably care to think of anyone but yourselves. Think about who you are hurting by the obnoxious things you say!!!
