Driver Escapes Serious Injury after Car flips on M27

A driver has escaped serious injuries after their car left the M27 near Port Solent  overnight(Tuesday).

The vehicle, a white Corsa,  is believed to have hit a wet patch on the carriageway and  lost control. The vehicle flipped,  left the carriageway and ended up 20 feet down the embankment  on to  its roof.  The incident happened  on the Westbound off slip near to Junction 12 of the M27 Motorway.

Recovery specialist Boarhunt  had to bring in a former army crane  to recover  the vehicle that was severely damaged. One lane of the off slip was temporary  closed to allow for the safety of the recovery  workers and recovery of the vehicle.  The lane closure is hoped to be  removed by 1pm this afternoon.
