Two others have been taken to St Mary's Hospital in Newport.

A car caught fire in the crash this morning (Sunday), closing the road.

Isle of Wight firefighters from Freshwater, Newport and Yarmouth were on scene and used breathing apparatus and hoses to put out the flames, after the call just before 7:20am.

Southern Vectis route 7 buses are diverting via Shalfleet,  Ningwood, Wellow, and Thorley. The route is also running with delays.

Owing to an accident at Bouldner, Route 7 via Shalfleet will divert from Ningwood, via Wellow, Thorley and then to Yarmouth until the road has reopened. Diversion will be in both directions. #travelalert
