Police appeal after workman struck by vehicle

Blue Police Lamp

Police are appealing for witnesses to a road traffic incident involving a road worker on the B2177, near Eastleigh.

On Tuesday April 1, just before 2pm, a road contractor’s worker was involved in a collision with a passing vehicle travelling through the temporary road works in Lower Upham, opposite the MACE convenience store on Winchester Road.

The workman, who was painting white lines on the road at the time, suffered a head injury and was taken to hospital for assessment; his injury is not thought to be serious.

Sergeant Richard Grant said:

“We’d like to hear from anyone who may have been passing through these traffic light controlled roadworks last Tuesday early afternoon, who may have seen the incident. It’s possible that the driver of the vehicle was unaware there was an impact.”

“The workman was found by another work colleague sat on the pavement at the side of the road, with a visible mark on the front of his head.”

Anyone with any information, please call Sgt Grant at Totton Roads Policing Unit on 101.
