FIREFIGHTERS had to free two elderly people from an overturned vehicle following a crash on the A337 at Barton on Tuesday afternoon.
The man and woman were trapped inside as a result of the incident which took place on Christchurch Road shortly before 3pm, near Hoburne Naish Holiday Park.
Having been released by fire crews from New Milton and Christchurch, the woman was taken by ambulance to Southampton General Hospital. A spokesperson for South Central Ambulance Service said her injuries were not thought to have been life-threatening.
Paramedics treated the other casualty at the scene for what were described as minor injuries.
The main road remained closed to traffic for about two-and-a-half hours, with delays reported on routes through New Milton and Walkford.
A Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: “Fire crews from Christchurch and New Milton responded to a report of a road traffic collision involving a single vehicle which had overturned.
“Two persons were released by firefighters and placed in the care of the ambulance service.”
