Driver suffers serious injuries as car and lorry collide in Aldershot

A man was airlifted to King's College Hospital in London after a car and a lorry collided on a roundabout in Aldershot

Several emergency services attended the scene

Serious injuries were suffered by a man after a lorry collided with a car on a busy slip road in Aldershot.

A green Land Rover Discovery collided with the lorry on the slip road off the A331 Farnborough bypass at 12.45pm on Thursday December 19, with both vehicles coming to rest on the roundabout for the A323 Ash Road.

The driver of the Land Rover, a man in his 50s, was trapped inside the vehicle and was rescued by firefighters who attended the scene along with several police officers, ambulances and the air ambulance helicopter.

The man suffered serious injuries, including an arm injury, and was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital before being transferred to King's College Hospital in London and finally London's St Thomas' Hospital. He is described as being in a stable condition.

Part of the roundabout was closed while a police investigation took place and motorists leaving Aldershot and travelling towards Ash were forced to turn onto the A331 towards Camberley, while the slip road off the A331 south bound was also closed.

The roads were all reopened at around 4.30pm.
