Police say the A1 has reopened after two people were injured in this morning’s serious crash and flown to Queen’s Medical Centre,


A grey soft top Land Rover 90 was in collision with a white VW Crafter panel van on the southbound carriageway at Foston at about 9.45am.

Police say this resulted in the Land Rover crossing over onto the northbound carriageway.

The two occupants of the Land Rover, a man and woman, were flown to hospital by the air ambulance.

Police say the man involved is believed to have been seriously injured, but have not commented on the woman’s injuries.

They say the driver of the van was not seriously injured.

Police are appealing for witnesses.

A spokesman said: “It seems that several witnesses may have continued on their journeys prior to the police arriving at the scene.

“Anyone who witnessed the collision who have not yet been spoken to by officers are asked to call Lincs Police on the non-emergency 101 number or the Collision Witness Hotline on 01522 558855.

“It would be helpful if they could quote Incident 127 of 19th September.”
