A car erupted into flames this morning on a Hampshire motorway, adding to the traffic misery blighting the county's roads.

Delays were caused after a silver Hyundai caught fire on the M27 close to junction eight at Bursledon.

Daily Echo:

Two people were taken to the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth by ambulance.

Meanwhile, a green Renault Laguna also broke down close to junction nine at Whiteley.

Daily Echo:

The incidents come after two earlier crashes on the M3 and M27 caused delays of over an hour and a crash and fire on the A3 caused problems in the east of the county.

Not really true, they could have been in the back seat of the car (on the drivers side).

Either way, the driver was 'rubber necking'.

Without these so called 'rubber neckers', traffic would flow more freely if they didn't slow down at incidents on motorways.

Or he was stuck behind someone else rubber-necking.

it 'erupted' did it? really! are you sure it didn't just catch fire or perhaps even more dramatically burst into flames? isn't the word erupted a tad sensationalist? (even for the echo).
