Two cars leave the road on A46 Lincoln, with four injured

Two separate single car collisions on the A46 Lincoln bypass in less than 24 hours have resulted in four people suffering from minor injuries.

The first crash occurred at around 10.55pm on Monday, August 31 on a stretch of the A46 at Thorpe on the Hill.

A silver Seat Leon had collided with road side furniture. The vehicle was being driven by a 47-year-old woman from the Farndon area.

The driver was taken to Lincoln County Hospital with what are described as minor injuries.

Two other passengers, both men, aged 47 and 24 were also taken to the County Hospital suffering minor injuries. All three occupants are from the Farndon and Newark area.

The road was closed to allow emergency services to treat the casualties and reopened around 12.20am on Tuesday.

PC Michael Swaby is asking anyone who witnesses the crash or who saw the car being driven along the A46 prior to the collision to contact him. People should call the non-emergency number 101, quoting incident 442 August 31.

In the early hours on Tuesday, September 1, a second car left the road on a section of the A46 into a ditch.

The silver Ford Mondeo, driven by a 48-year-old man from the Brigg area, crashed at around 6am between the Skellingthorpe roundabout and Carholme roundabout.

Fire crews attended to help release the man who was trapped for a time, and the road was closed northbound until around 8.42am.

The man was taken to Lincoln County Hospital with minor injuries and police are dealing with the crash under incident number 40 of September 1.
