Motorcyclist injured after A17 crash

Have your say

A man has been taken to hospital with a shoulder injury after a crash between a van and a motorbike on the A17 in Long Sutton today.

It happened shortly before 8am when a Honda motorbike collided with a Ford Transit and the bike rider, a 55-year-old man from Newark, Nottinghamshire, was taken to Pilgrim Hospital, Boston.

He is also being treated for cuts and bruises, but the van driver was unhurt.

Meanwhile, motorists also faced rush hour misery on the A17 in Sutton Bridge when a broken down lorry caused tailbacks between the junction of Hundreds Lane and East Bank.

The road was partially blocked southbound while the lorry was recovered and the route has now been cleared.
