Bad weather plays role in motorway crash

Daily Echo: Bad weather plays role in motorway crash Bad weather plays role in motorway crash

Two people have been taken to hospital after a crash in “extremely poor” driving conditions.

The Honda Accord they were travelling in collided with the crash barrier on the M27 eastbound between Hedge End and Hamble.

Fire crews had to remove the roof from car to free the people inside after the crash, which happened at around 1.15am this morning.

A 63-year-old man who was driving the car and a 62-year-old woman who was a passenger, were taken to hospital with bruising and whiplash injuries.

Police say the accident happened during high winds and heavy rain.

Hope the people involved in this are ok,and wish them a full recovery. It was truly a terrible night on the roads last night.
We travelled down the M27 last night at about 23.15 and there was a very serious looking incident eastbound near Fareham/Gosport,lots of emergency vehicles attending to an overturned car,the weather at that time was fine though. I can't find any news on this incident,could it have been a training exercise perhaps?

100%HANTSBOY, No not training. That was a red Peugeot 106 that overturned last night about 22.15, between junctions 10-11.The Fareham and Cosham fire crews and an ambulance attended and had to cut the car to release the driver who was lucky, only had minor injuries, but was taken to hospital.

\Thanks for that Soviet,thank God all is ok,it really turns my stomach when I see that many Ambulances and Fire Engines at a scene.
And Mickey 01,you're spot on with your comment,I too,see this all too often,and inappropriate use of fog lights really winds me up.a spot of mist and the Gadget Addicts reach for the buttons!!
