THE driver of a car which left the carriageway after a collision near Barton Stacey has sparked a police search.

Brian Collins was involved in a collision last night on the A303.

The 34-year-old was believed to be driving a silver Mercedes when the car left the eastbound carriageway at around 9.30pm and ended up in a field.

Police believe Brian, from Andover, then left his car before the ambulance arrived and although he was able to walk away from the scene, he may have serious injuries.

Officers have been conducting extensive enquiries overnight at the location of the incident, using specialist teams, including dog units and a helicopter, but they have not been able to locate him.

Brian is described as white, slim and 5 feet 7 inches tall.

He was last seen wearing a white polo shirt and black, skinny, ripped jeans.

He also had a visible injury to his head following the collision

Police are appealing to anyone in the area to call the police if they see Brian, and we ask anyone who knows where Brian is, to make contact with the police.
