Long delays on A31 after car and caravan crash
4:50pm Friday 19th July 2013 in News
MOTORISTS in the New Forest are facing long delays this afternoon after a crash on a major Hampshire road.
The westbound carriageway of the A31 was blocked earlier between Picket Post and Poulner Hill due to a collision between a car and a caravan at around 11.50am
Police directed traffic off at Picket Post behind the Texaco garage but queues are still being reported.
The air ambulance has been called but it is not believed that there are any life-threatening injuries.
A police spokesman said a man was complaining of pain and was cut out of his vehicle, a Ford Galaxy, due to being medically trapped.
All lanes have now been reopened but long tailbacks remain, with hundreds flocking to the coast to make the most of the hot weather this weekend.
