A lorry driver was taken to hospital with head injuries after his HGV was in collision with a stationary Highways England vehicle on the M3 on Monday evening.

The driver, aged 48, had to be cut free by fire crews following the crash, which saw the tipper lorry spill its load across the the middle of the southbound carriageway between Camberley and Farnborough at around 7.20pm.

The crash happened in the roadworks area south of junction 4 for the A331 Blackwater Valley Route, on the approach to the junction 4A exit slip road.

The man was unconscious when paramedics arrived and he was treated at the scene.

A spokesman for South East Coast Ambulance Service said: “We were called to reports that a man had suffered a head injury on the M3 southbound near Farnborough.

“We sent two cars, two ambulances and an air ambulance.

“We treated the driver of the lorry, which had turned on its side, at the scene before he was taken to Frimley Park Hospital by road ambulance.

“The man had gained consciousness prior to leaving the scene.”

Surrey Police said on Tuesday that the driver remained in a stable condition at Frimley Park Hospital.

Rushmoor fire station crew manager Mike Saunders said they were joined by colleagues from Fleet and Hartley Wintney, and later a crew from Basingstoke bearing specialist extraction equipment including heavy cutting gear.

“It was a difficult job given the vehicle was on its side,” said Mr Saunders.

“The Rushmoor crew did the initial work. We opened it up and got him out. He was in a serious condition when we extracted him though.

“The collision saw a lorry hit a Highways Agency vehicle. There’s a lot of maintenance going on on the M3 right now. The collision forced the lorry over, which came to a rest in the active lanes.”

Mr Saunders added the Rushmoor crew left the scene shortly before 9pm.

The stretch of road was closed up until the early hours of Tuesday to allow for the debris to be cleared.

The two lane of the northbound carriage remain closed as the recovery operation continues.

A  Police spokesman said “The carriage ways are likely to remain closed until the early hours of the morning as the recovery and investigations takes place.”
