On Thursday, December 9, at around 9pm, a car left the road on the southbound side of Hanover Way, near the underpass running from Broomhall Street towards Headford Gardens.
The driver of the vehicle is believed to have been seriously injured.
Residents living nearby have pointed out that this incident is the second of its kind to happen there since 2018, where a man was fatally injured in a similar collision, and have called for barriers to be put in place ‘before it happens again’.
Kaltum Rivers, councillor for Broomhill and Sharrow Vale, said: “This is a very dangerous part of the road. There have been two serious incidents where cars have flown off the road, and children, students and elderly people use this underpass very regularly.
"Last night, everybody who came out to the scene was saying ‘not again’. We are all very shaken up and worried.
"The council needs to put barriers up there along the road, not just to protect pedestrians and cyclists, but to protect drivers too.
"I will be taking this to a council meeting. How many more times do we want this to happen before we act?”
Cllr Rivers said she had seen the skid marks on the road and it looked like the car had left the ground and ‘flew’ off the road.
"I don’t know what the driver’s injuries were but it looked very bad,” she added.
