Three cyclists seriously injured in collision with Aston Martin in New Forest

Victims include 14-year-old girl; 28-year-old man arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving

Three cyclists – two adults and a 14-year-old girl – were taken to hospital with serious injuries yesterday following a collision with a dark-coloured Aston Martin car at Brockenhurst in the New Forest.

The incident took place on the A337 Lymington Road shortly after 4.45pm, reports the Daily Echo. Two of the riders were flown to hospital by helicopters from the Hampshire & Isle of Wight and Thames Valley & Chiltern air ambulance services.


One of those was reported to have sustained serious leg injuries, while the other suffered severe injuries to the upper body. The third cylist, who sustained facial injuries, was taken to the same hospital by road. The driver was said to be uninjured.

Hampshire Constabulary say that other than the 14-year-old, the victims were a man aged 68 and a 58-year-old woman.

They add that a 28-year-old man from Lymington was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving. He has been released on bail until November 25, while officers continue their enquiries.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident or anyone who saw the vehicle prior to the collision to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit by telephoning 101 and quoting Operation Fama.
