A pick up truck was in collision with a lorry on the A17 Sleaford bypass near Holdingham roundabout this afternoon (Wednesday).
The collision occurred at around 2pm and one passing motorist told the Standard: “It appears to be a van that has collided with the bridge structure.”
Later reports confirmed it was a smash involving a green pick up truck and a low-loader lorry on the westbound carriageway close to the pedestrian and cyclepath bridge linking Sleaford and Leasingham.
The truck then hit the central crash barrier.
Fire, police and ambulance crews were on the scene and the air ambulance also landed in a nearby field to allow its medics to provide assistance.
Fire crews from Sleaford and Metheringham attended and used a winch to remove the pick up truck from the crash barrier to be able to release the driver’s door.
The road was blocked in that direction but was re-opened by 3.30pm.
A Lincolnshire Police spokesman added: “We were called to a two-vehicle collision at the Holdingham roundabout today at 2.12pm. The A17 was completely closed and diversions were put in place at the A153 junction. Air ambulance was on scene.
“One person was taken to hospital via land ambulance for checks. The road is now partially open.”
