A road to the north of Lincoln has been closed for the second time in less than a day after a truck veered into a ditch. The driver has been taken to hospital.

The B1398 is closed in both directions between Fillingham and Ingham following the crash at just after 9.30am on Wednesday, January 20.

The driver, a 51-year-old Lincoln man, and the only occupant of the vehicle, has been taken to Lincoln County Hospital for treatment.

The incident happened near to the junction with the A631 involving a white Isuzu Tipper.

A number of witnesses at the scene were said to have come to the aid of the driver involved.

Police are still conducting investigations at the scene.

Lincolnshire Police have said that the road is expected to be re-opened by midday.

Anyone who witnessed the incident should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 75 of January 20.

This incident is the second in less than 24 hours on the same stretch of road.

As previously reported, a van driver was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham after his vehicle left the road and crashed into a tree at Ingham crossroads over night on January 19.
