BREAKING NEWS: Woman taken to hospital by air ambulance following serious collision on A46 near Market Rasen

There has been a serious collision this evening, Wednesday December 18, on the A46 near Market Rasen.

The collision took place at 6.03pm and involved a Ford and an Audi.

A woman was trapped in one of the cars and firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to free her. She was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary by air ambulance with multiple injuries.

Fire crews from Caistor, Market Rasen and Lincoln attended the scene along with police and LIVES medics.

The collision closed the road in both directions.

Earlier reports indicated that a bus was involved, but the Rasen Mail now understands it was merely caught up in the traffic directly behind the collision.
