A man left with serious injuries after falling out of his car and being slammed in the face by his car door remains in hospital.

CCTV footage previously shared with the Echo showed the video of the driver falling out of the silver Audi which was careering backwards out of control, before ending up in a grass verge in Sholing.

In the footage, the driver, a man in his 60s can be seen to tumble out of the silver Audi A8 as it heads backwards.

The car then hits a yellow grit box before the door is bent backwards and smacks the stricken driver.

The man was left with a 'serious but not life-threatening injury' following the crash.

Police have now confirmed he remains in hospital for treatment.

Officers confirmed they were called before 9am on Thursday in Furze Close, Sholing.

The car was eventually stopped from going any further by a metal barrier on a footpath that had been busy with children on their way to school only minutes earlier.

The crash left a trail of destruction behind with the yellow box torn and the tyre marks still visible on the grass.

The metal barriers on the cutaway also showed considerable damage from when the car smashed against it.

A neighbour nearby who heard what happened, who asked not to be named said: “I was at home this morning and I heard a big bang, and I thought it came from upstairs’ neighbours.

“I didn’t think too much of it, it was only when I heard a commotion coming from outside that drew my attention.

“When I saw what happened I thought to check the CCTV and that’s when I saw the crash.”
