Teenage girl out of intensive care

Wednesday 20 July 2016


A seventeen-year-old girl is now "stable" having left intensive care at Jersey General Hospital after the car she was travelling in overturned on the Five Mile Road.

The accident happened just after 2pm on Wednesday on the 's' bends between La Pulente and Le Braye.

Paramedics treated the male driver, and another female passenger, who were both also seventeen, for shock, before taking them to hospital with minor injuries. Both the male driver and female passenger were released from hospital on the day of the crash.

The three were travelling in a black Ford Fiesta. Police are investigating what happened, and are appealing for an elderly couple in a blue car who were in the area at the time of the incident, and a man who spoke with the 'Emergency Operator' from the scene, to contact them on 612 612. 

That section of the Five Mile Road had to be closed while the emergency services dealt with the accident.

A statement has just been issued by the Fire and Rescue Service: "Six Firefighters from White Watch were initially dispatched from Fire Hq in a Fire Appliance and the dedicated Rescue Unit. On Route is was established that all the occupants were out of the vehicle but the vehicle had overturned on the roadway with potential casualties requiring assistance.

"Once in attendance the Fire and Rescue Service ascertained that there were three occupants in the vehicle at the time of the collision. Assistance was given to States of Jersey Paramedics in the treatment of one potentially seriously injured occupant of the vehicle and the remaining two occupants were treated on scene for shock.

"Crews remained on scene to assist States of Jersey Police in dealing with a large amount of traffic built up during the incident and making the vehicle and scene safe. The cause of the incident is currently being investigated."
