Two people were injured, one seriously, after a crash involving two vehicles near Spalding Bus Station.

Police are establishing how the crash happened on Winfrey Avenue at about 10.45am on Thursday, but eyewitnesses claimed that a vehicle drove out of the car park and hit two pedestrians before colliding with a taxi parked nearby.

A woman, thought to be aged about 50, was airlifted to Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham, with severe head injuries and a 14-year-old boy was taken to Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, with minor injuries.

Winfrey Avenue itself was closed for several hours while police diverted traffic away from the area.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: “The collision was reported to police at around 10.45am and it involved two vehicles, a Peugeot hatchback and a taxi, and two pedestrians.

“Officers arrived at the scene and closed the road to traffic, with the circumstances surrounding the incident now subject to investigation.”

The spokesman also said the injured woman was recovering well in hospital and anyone who saw the accident should call 101. Photo (DENISE VICKERS): SG290813-133DV.
