A WOMAN was taken by ambulance to hospital after her car overturned in Wootton during the early hours of this morning (Tuesday).

Emergency services were called to the incident in Station Road just after midnight.

Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service had been called following a report the woman was trapped in the car, but she had been released from the vehicle by the time the two crews from Newport arrived at the scene.

The woman was taken by ambulance to St Mary’s Hospital, Newport.

Fire crews made the scene safe.

*A 31-year-old woman, who was behind the wheel of another vehicle involved in the incident, has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving. She was released on police bail until June 3.

It was initially reported that only one vehicle was involved. This was due to incorrect information supplied.
