The Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance has been called to a crash which has closed the A17 Sleaford bypass in both directions this afternoon (Tuesday).

According to Lincolnshire Police, the crash was reported at around 2.45pm near the junction with Boston Road and the A17 at Kirkby La Thorpe.

A police spokesman said a woman driving a black Peugeot has been taken to Lincoln County Hospital with minor injuries after the single vehicle collision.

“We are awaiting recovery of the vehicle, the road was re-opened at 3.50pm,” she said.

The A17 had been closed to traffic both ways between the junction with the A153 and Burton Road near Asgarby for emergency services on the scene to reach the car which had reportedly rolled over into a field. It caused heavy traffic between Sleaford and Heckington while diversions were put in place.

An East Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We sent two responder paramedics, a paramedic on a car, an ambulance and the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

“One patient was taken to Lincoln County Hospital by land ambulance for further care.”
