Man airlifted to hospital after A34 crash near Newbury

A man was airlifted to hospital last night (Saturday) after a collision on the A34 near Newbury.

Delta Team Manager Stephenson said that two appliances were called to the scene at the southbound carriageway near to the A4 junction at around 6.30pm.

A Red Mitsubishi Evo had broken down and the two male passengers had left the vehicle to check what was wrong.

A Silver Range Rover then collided into the back of the Mitsubishi and sent one of the men hard into the barrier fence.

The man, who is aged 26 and from Havant, was airlifted to hospital with injuries that are not thought to be serious.

Several ambulances and police also attended and one lane was closed for around an hour before police re-opened it by around 8pm.

There were no other reported injuries.

    We saw the accident happen yesterday. We were on the opposite side of the a34 just pulling over into a lay by as the accident happened. We all saw what happened. Both my boyfriend and brother jumped out of the car and ran across the a34 to flag the traffic to slow down. They ran down to the accident to see if everyone was okay and we're first people on the scene

        I hope all is okay with your son. I was with Chris when it happened and got straight on to the phone to the emergency services. Again I hope all are doing okay and if you want to know anything that happened please feel free to ask. I also have a card from someone else who pulled over behind us if you wanted to ask them anything as well x
