Teenager on road to recovery after crash


A teenager is recovering in hospital following a serious collision between two cars on the A46 in Middle Rasen.

Beth Tyson, 18, from Tealby, suffered serious leg and back injuries when the silver Ford Fiesta she was driving collided with a grey Audi A6.

The incident occurred on Caistor Road, Middle Rasen, at 6:03pm on Wednesday, December 18. .

Beth, who works at the Olde Barn Inn in Tealby, was trapped in the car for over an hour before Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service managed to release her.

She was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary by air ambulance and was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit.

The front seat passenger of the Fiesta was taken to Lincoln County Hospital (LCH) where she was detained overnight with a hand injury and a relatively minor head injury.

The driver of the Audi, who was alone in the car, was also taken to Lincoln County Hospital with minor injuries and detained overnight for observation.

The road was not re-opened until around midnight.

Fire crews from Market Rasen, Caistor and Lincoln along with LIVES First Responders were also involved in the rescue operation.

PC 953 Dave McCracken is investigating the cause of the crash.

He is keen to speak to any witnesses who saw it happen or who saw the cars on the road prior to it.
