Pair airlifted after crash in village

Have your say

A MAN remains seriously ill in hospital with life-threatening head injuries after a collision involving two cars in Sutton Bridge.

The 19-year-old man from Long Sutton was airlifted to University Hospital in Coventry by the Derbyshire Air Ambulance following the crash on Bridge Road shortly after 5pm on Sunday.

He had been the sole occupant of a yellow Peugeot 206, which had collided with a blue Peugeot 106.

Police say he remains in a serious but stable condition.

The driver of the 106, a 19-year-old man from Holbeach St Johns, was also airlifted from the scene and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn by the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

He is being treated for facial and chest injuries.

His passenger, a 17-year-old girl from Holbeach, was also taken to King’s Lynn to be treated for non life-threatening facial and back injuries.

Police are now appealing for anyone who witnessed the accident to get in touch with them as soon as possible. Officers are particularly keen to trace a light-coloured Vauxhall Astra van, which may have been in the area about the same time as the collision. It is believed to have been silver or white.

Anyone with information should contact Sgt Jason Baxter of Lincolnshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 322 of April 8.
