Late night smash in Lake leaves road littered with debris

Police were called to Lake High Street late on Saturday evening after a traffic collision left debris littered across the carriageway and pavement.

A Skoda Fabia hatchback was left with heavy impact damage to its front end front after apparently colliding with several bollards lining the side of the road. It was a single-vehicle incident. Two occupants of the Skoda were arrested but one of them was later released without charge.

Hampshire Constabulary had several units attend the collision in Lake.

The collision occurred shortly before midnight with several police units attending.

No-one was injured but Hampshire Constabulary confirmed that two occupants in the Skoda – a 21-yer-old man and a 22-year-old woman, were initially arrested at the scene on suspicion of driving a motor vehicle when the alcohol level is above the legal limit – and for having no insurance.

And later the police told the IW Observer: “Madeleine Kae Evans, 22, of Victoria Road, Shanklin, has been charged with use of a motor vehicle on a road or in a public place without third-party insurance.

“She will appear before Newport Magtistrates Court on November 23.

“The 21-year-old man was released and no further action will be taken against him.”
