Four Men Injured In New Forest Car Crash

Police are appealing for witnesses after four men were injured in a crash in the New Forest.

Around five minutes past midnight on Monday 29th April, a black Renault Clio travelling from Lyndhurst on the A337
towards Cadnam came off the road. The vehicle is believed to have hit a tree before coming to rest on it's roof down an embankment.
The front seat passenger, 21, and a rear seat passenger, 20, had to be freed from the vehicle by fire crews. They suffered serious injuries. The driver and a rear seat passenger, both 21-year-old men, were able to get out of the vehicle. They suffered less serious injuries.

All the men, who are from the Southampton area, were taken by ambulance to Southampton General Hospital. All currently remain in hospital.

PC Phil Pentelow from the Totton Roads Policing unit, said:

"I'd like to thank the drivers and passengers of several vehicles, including a coach, who stopped to help at the scene.  

"I would like to hear from anyone with information about the collision or anyone who saw the Clio driving prior to it."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Totton Roads Policing unit on 101.
