Three people have been taken to hospital following a crash at Compton Chine where a vehicle was found 15 metres down an embankment.

Fire crew from Freshwater and Yarmouth were called to the scene of the crash at Compton Chine off the Military Road by the Isle of Wight Ambulance service at 21.29pm last night (Tuesday), where a vehicle had left the road near Compton Chine.

Firefighters help bring three casualties away from the Compton crash scene, to safety where they were then taken to St Mary’s Hospital.

An Ambulance spokesperson told Isle of Wight Radio the casualties were in a stable condition, but one has since been transferred to Southampton General.
