The casualties, a man and woman, both in their 80’s, had to be cut from a vehicle before being taken to Southampton General Hospital by ambulance.

A lane was closed during the incident and motorists experienced delays of up to 40 minutes.

There was congestion heading back to junction one of the M27 and the B3079 turn off for Cadnam with reports of three-and-a-half mile tailbacks.

It's clearly the road causing the accidents not the drivers. **** road never pays attention to who's using it.

I wonder if it was age related. No word of a lie, a few weeks ago at the roundabout where the A338 meets the A31, there was an elderly couple sat in a Micra that had collided with one of the signposts on the island dividing the entrance and exit lanes of the 338! Makes you wonder how many people on the road (of all ages for that matter) are actually aware enough to use it!

Or sufficient CCTV to identify who was the muppet who caused it and train them up a little or take away their licence if it was that bad.

No point in any limit unless it enforced, every hillock in a bmw/audi brigade will treat it as 70+ regardless.
