UPDATE: Man taken to hospital after car hits tree on Hurn Road

FIRE crews had to remove the side of a car this morning to release a person trapped inside.

Emergency services were called to Hurn Road at 7.20am after the black Honda Civic left the road and careered into trees and bushes.

The road was closed between Ashley Heath and Boundary Lane for more than two-and-a-half hours, leading to diversions for rush hour traffic.

A Dorset Police spokesman said a man suffered serious chest injuries and has been taken to Poole Hospital.  The vehicle is registered to a woman from Ringwood.

Local authority staff attended the scene at Avon Castle to clear up an oil spillage and the road was re-opened just before 10am.

Speed is nigh on always a 'factor'... doesn't mean it is the cause. Learn the difference before you spout crap about something.

I said speed is a factor in nigh on all cases... as can many other things be a factor. If it wasn't for speed, then the car would have been stationary, therefore no chance of colliding with another stationary object.

However, speed alone would not be the cause of this, the wet surface and therefore lack of grip would play a large part.

I suggest you clue yourself up on a few things before trying to be smart.

Speed will always be a factor because if you were stationary there would be no accident.

Unless someone crashed into you, of course.

It is people driving beyond their abilities that causes most accidents.
Regardless of speed and weather. If conditions are bad, drive accordingly. Don't crash and then blame conditions!

and let us hope the tree resides in Ringwood and not Christchurch. XChurch has a habit of knocking down good trees let alone one that has been injured.
