Woman fighting for life after being hit by car in Bursledon

First published in News

A WOMAN is fighting for her life after being hit by a car in Hampshire.

She was hit by a Ford Fiesta near Bursledon at about 4.30am on Saturday.

She was taken to Southampton General Hospital with “life-threatening injuries” after the collision, which happened near to the junction of West End Road and Peewit Hill, close to the Windhover Roundabout.

People living nearby told the Daily Echo they heard a “commotion” and “screaming” coming from one of the houses in West End Road in the hours leading up to the collision.

The driver of the Fiesta was not arrested.

The road was closed for about four hours while police carried out their investigations at the scene.

Anyone with information about what happened leading up to the incident should contact the Totton Roads Policing Unit on 101, quoting Operation Albireo.

People drive too fast along that road, once clocked someone doing motorway speeds along there, despite the repeater signs indicating it's only a 40 limit.

Back in the day iirc it was unrestricted. So you could do 60. Parts of it are 30 too aint they? Due to the housing I think. Used to also be a time when drunks would amble into the road there when kicked out the pubs

A27(including west end road) is 40mph until near Swaythling, the other West end road that goes across Moorhill road is a 30 on the Eastleigh side between West End and Moorhill road and mostly a 40 on the Southampton side until it nears the Bitterne area.
