OFFICERS have launched an investigation after a car flipped upside down following a crash in Thornhill.

At around 11.56 last night, a Vauxhall Mokka ended up on its roof following a crash with a Fiat 500 on Hinkler Road.

Hampshire Police and Hampshire Fire and Rescue attended the scene, in which no one was reported to be injured.

After arriving at the incident, officers arrested a 32-year-old man from Southampton, who was later released under investigation.

A Hampshire Police spokesperson said: "We were called at 11.56pm to a report of a collision involving a Vauxhall Mokka and Fiat 500. The Vauxhall had overturned. Officers attended along with crews from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service. A 32-year-old man from Southampton was arrested. He has been released under investigation."

Residents were awoken by "a massive bang" and watched as emergency services made the scene safe.

Sid Fry, who lives on Hinkler Road, said: "It was quite the shock! There was a massive bang and when I looked out my window, one of the cars were upside down. It took them around two hours to sort it out."

A Hampshire fire spokesperson said: "We were requested to attend an incident at 11.34pm, and two crews from Hightown Fire Station were dispatched to the road traffic collision involving two cars. One car was on its roof and one male had left his car when we arrived.

No one was injured or trapped and we made the scene safe before leaving at 12.17am."
