THE A17 was closed at Fleet for more than two and a half hours on Thursday morning after a van crashed into a bollard and flipped onto its side.
The male driver of the white transit van suffered head and shoulder injuries following the crash, which happened just before 5am near the Washway Road junction.
Emergency services had to free the driver from the van, which took time as it was on its side.
There was also debris in the road and exposed wires from the central reservation that had to be cleared and repaired before the road could re-open, between 7.30am and 8am.
The driver’s age and address was not known at time of press.
